I tried it too, without great success. I've a Dell Latitude C840, with GeForce4
440 Go. It works on the TV out, with a secondary X server, or in DualHead with
the main login (gdm) on TV, or on the CRT as duplicate of the TFT.

Try to "boot" the card (probably booting the machine) with the secondary screen
plugged. It works sometimes.

Check if you must use <Fn>+<whatever> keys to enable the second monitor.
