In my experience dual-head doesn't work so good with the 'nv' driver. 
Assuming you run lenny (it is different for squeeze as FX 5200 is not 
supported by newer drivers) and you kernel flavour is -686

- add 'non-free' to sources.list
- update and install the packages nvidia-glx,  
  nvidia-kernel-2.6.26-2-686 nvidia-settings
- edit your xorg.conf to contain

Section "Device"
	Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
	Driver		"nvidia"

- restart X (you should see the nVidia logo)
- use nvidia-settings to setup your screens
