OpenSolaris x86 Triple Heading

So I finally got tired of gentoo and emerge -pvDp world. Since I was running so many unstable packages (I like the latest gnome, netbeans, video drivers, etc) it got to be a dependency nightmare. It didn't help that I wouldn't regularly emerge either. But thats how I used it so....

I installed OpenSolaris yesterday. Installed just fine, and then the customization starts :)

I have an AMD64 box (Asus A8NSLI) with two geforce 6800 video cards (not sli'ed) setup to triple head. (left and center monitors run off card0 vga out and card0 dvi out, right monitor runs off of card1 vga out)

So I grabbed my xorg.conf from my old configuration, copied it over and voila :) Triple head no problem with xinerama and the nvidia drivers.

Here's a pic:

Here's the xorg.conf:
