[ubuntu-uk] setting up dual screen with a dual head graphics card

Hi all, especially Rob cos I saw he mentioned this...

how do I get my nVidia GT8600 to do dual screen? There's a DVI port and
a VGA port, but only one of them will give an image at a time when two
monitors are plugged in - the DVI. Why is this? The screen setup doesn't
detect the second screen.
As far as I know, i have not installed twinview or anything else
manually: don't know if it comes pre-installed...

Thanks in advance if anyone can help :D
