In order get the binary drivers to load, edit rc.local and add :
Using the display configuration utilities setup dual head, then edit
the new configuration file to use the nVidia binary driver on both
Now once you log in both displays will work.
Note: You don't really have to reboot to make the changes but
for novice users it is the easiest way to get everything the way
it needs to be set up in order to work.
I use this so I can watch TV full-screen on one monitor, while
working on the other.
