I never have to restart Xorg, all screens are available at once.

like that). One xorg.conf

>You have 3 monitors sections, 3 devices sections, and 3 screen sections.
Each device section contains an Option "UseDisplayDevice" "xxx" and Screen x
Where xxx is the name of the video interface (one of DFP-0, DFP-1,
CRT-0 etc..) and x is the number of the screen it points to (0,1 or 2)

Interesting, do you see all three concurrently (from what you say it seems you do), and if so, how is each connected?  

Maybe CRT via VGA, DFP-0 via DVI and the third? (Perhaps component??) 

Which model of GeForce 8600 GT?
