I struggled with this for a while. It seems to work fine (but slow) out
of the box with the nv driver, but as soon as soon as I installed the
nvidia driver (FX5700) I was stuck with 1680x1200. I finally got it
working at 1920x1200 by doing the following:
1) install kmod-nvidia from livna
2) run the nvidia-xconfig utility
3) add the following line to the Screen section of xorg.conf  
	Option         "ModeValidation" "NoMaxPClkCheck"

Do a "man nvidia-xconfig" to find out about the command.
Step 3 is the critical mojo for getting the full resolution. 

I have attached the xconfig file, but you shouldn't need it.

Now if only I could figure out how to get dual screens working on
my x86-64/ATI7500 at work....
