Subject: Failed attempt to get pianosa to support dual monitors 

I've spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out how to get pianosa to support dual monitors.  It apparently has some special nvidia graphics that are not well supported in Ubuntu (10.04 at least).  I've tried installing a newer kernel (3.0.0) and installing the special nvidia compile-from-source Ubuntu packages, but nothing is working.  And now unfortunately he's not giving me any video at all.  I'm sick of this today, so I'll try again tomorrow.

In the future we should avoid these bullshit nvidia cards like the plague.
