Default Multiple Monitors support
I have two monitors and can't seem to get them working correctly, The best that I've been able to do, is have them display the same thing on both monitors.

HW:
EVSA e-GeForce 6200LE 256MB PCI-E graphics card.
Two Dell F197FP 19" flat panel monitors

I installed the nvidia drivers but cannot get the "nvidia" driver to drive the monitors (the "nv" driver works for one monitor only) at anything better then 1024x800. Any time I set the resolution higher with two monitors connected, I get a message from the monitors saying they cannot support the resolution even though this is the same resolution I'm using right now to right this message. Both are also at 60hz.

Does PC-BSD support, during the install process, configuring multiple monitors?
Any other Ideas.

I hate to let this monitor just sit here collecting dust.

You need to read man pages for Xinerama. If you go carefully through forum you will be even able to find xorg.conf file that somebody posted for multiple monitors.
