        Tested under Red Hat 7.2 Gnome.
        Only root can run NVOPTION because the program need modify XF86Config-4  file.
        NVOPTION only work in X mode ,if you install incorrecly NVIDIA drivers (how to here)
        NVOPTION works but don't modify the XF86Config-4 file.After some change working
        you need restart X mode. If your system don't restar, you need edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
        file and delete lines labeled          "Option"         betwen      "# start added by nvoption"  and
        "# end added by nvoption"

                                                                                                                              your cursor shape at a given offset from the real cursor.
                                                                                                                              This option is only available on GeForce2 MX or better
                                                                                                                              hardware (ie GeForce2 MX (200/400), GeForce2 Pro, GeForce
                                                                                                                              2 Ultra, GeForce2 Go, GeForce3, Quadro, Quadro DDC,

twinview tab TAB TWINVIEW

Option "TwinView" "boolean"  Enable or disable TwinView. 
                . Default: TwinView is disabled.

        Option "TwinViewOrientation" "string"
                Controls the relationship between the two display devices
                when using TwinView.  Takes one of the following values:
                "RightOf" "LeftOf" "Above" "Below" "Clone".
                  Default: string is NULL.

     Option "ConnectedMonitor" "string"
                Allows you to override what the NVIDIA kernel module
                detects is connected to your video card.  This may
                be useful, for example, if you use a KVM (keyboard,
                video, mouse) switch and you are switched away when
                 X is started. In such a situation, the NVIDIA kernel
                module can't detect what display devices are connected,
                and the NVIDIA X driver assumes you have a single CRT
                                                                                                                            connected. If, however, you use a digital flat panel
                                                                                                                            instead of a CRT, use this option to explicitly tell
                Valid values for   this option are "CRT" (cathode ray tube),                   the NVIDIA X driver what is connected.
                "DFP" (digital Flat panel), or "TV" (television); if using
                TwinView, this option may be a comma-separated list of
               display devices; e.g.: "CRT, CRT" or "CRT, DFP".
                Default: string is NULL.

    The "TVStandard" option should be added to your screen section; valid
        values are:

        "PAL-B"  : used in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Guinea,
                   Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, The

        "PAL-K1" : used in Guinea
        "PAL-M"  : used in Brazil
        "PAL-N"  : used in France, Paraguay, and Uruguay
        "PAL-NC" : used in Argentina
        "NTSC-J" : used in Japan
                                                                                                                   "NTSC-M" : used in Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador,
                                                                                                                                       Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico, South
                                                                                                                                       Korea, Taiwan, United States of America, and Venezuela.

  The line in your XF86Config file should be something like:                            
        Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
    If you don't specify a TVStandard, or you specify an invalid value,
    the default "NTSC-M" will be used.  Note: if your country is not in
    the above list, select the country closest to your location.
The "TVOutFormat" option can be used to force SVIDEO or COMPOSITE
    output.  Without this option the driver autodetects the output format.
    Unfortunately, it doesn't always do this correctly.  The output format
    can be forced with the options:
         Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
                     or
         Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
