    I think you are reffering to the Voodoo3 3000. It works quite easy by
    installing nVidia drivers and adding the following lines to XF86Config,
    Section "Device":
    Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
      Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
      Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
      Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600;
    640x480, 640x480;"
      Option "TwinView" "on"
      Option "TwinOrientation" "Clone"
      Option "CursorShadow" "on"
      Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
      Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
      Screen 0
      Option "Rotate" "off"
      VendorName "NVidia"

    Replace the TV-Standard with the one from your contry
