    Well, you're screwed.  I see three options:
    1. Use nv.
    2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130039
    3. Use the console.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why closed source drivers suck.  :)

But economically speaking, while sucking, I go look for the GeForce 6200 cards and shell out about $90 for 2 cards.

I am not doing that if the nv driver were to function anywhere near the nvidia driver.

Still sucking, nvidia wins. But X sucks also because they started it this time.
