I have four monitors with Fedora. There are two options...
1. Use 2 or more standard nvidia cards (or any card, really) and use
Xinerama to combine them into a single "screen". This slows down
some applications (most are OK) but the result "just works", despite
years-old claims that Xinerama is "deprecated". I'm using two 9800GT
cards, for example.
2. Buy a card that supports more than two monitors. Matrox makes a
range of these, but beware - they have their own drivers and they're
not as responsive as, say, nvidia. I'm still trying to get the
latest one working sufficently. When I used the M9148 card with F12,
it was *wonderful*.
