Default Mulitple video cards in AccerPower s285

Hello,
I have AccerPower s285 computerwith 2GB of RAM, 80GB drive, running ubuntu 9.04.I understand it's an old box but this will be fine as long I can get that to work with ubuntu 9.04. I want to put couple of graphic cards into it for multiple displays and I have few problems. I hope I can find some suggestions or answers to my problems here.
This mobo has 3 PCI slots so I thought that maybe I can add 2 older cards (with dual outputs - vga and hdmi): Radeon 9250 and one nVidia GeForce 6200 but for some reason things are not working as I thought they would be .
I tried dozen of things in xorg.conf file but none of them seem to work, so for now I have 1 nVidia added, 1 Radeon, my power suppply is 650W kingwin. Here's my lspci output:

Code:

	Subsystem: Hightech Information System Ltd. Device 2020

Here's my xorg.conf file:
Code:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

If I change Xinerama to 'on' then I get error that I have to fix my configuration after grub loads. I want to connect 2 or more displays to these cards so if anyone could help me out a bit I would appreciate. Can anybody give some suggestions as to how to fix my xorg.conf file?

Thank you very much!!
