Combining ATI & NVIDIA cards under Linux

Are there any gotchas I should be aware of?

Hi all-


I have in the past programmed for CUDA using NVIDIA GPUs, to good success. Now I'd like to expand into OpenCL, using ATI cards, and I'm trying to educate myself. A few intro questions:

Is it possible to have both an NVIDIA card and an ATI card in the same machine, and have their linux drivers play nice together?

Does it matter which card is providing the video output? Can I do all my work remotely via SSH?

Do I absolutely have to restart after installing the ATI linux driver?

Thanks for any words of wisdom / anecdotes, and I look forward to joining the community!
