It seems to have a solution.
without the nvidia 3D driver, you can use xinerama or something like
that to use 2 displays easily.
I can't test it because i'll only have one monitor !!!
you can install by synaptic a software called grandr, a gtk gnome
interface for xrandr which allow you to use 2 displays easily.
to start grandr, open a terminal, and write grandr, a graphical
interface will up, with your displays.
I have a nvidia 7300 GS, with a vga port and a dvi port. so If it works,
you can use 2 displays.
I'm interested by the result on you computer...
complete documentation here, but only in french...
