    PhysX *is* available for Linux. As for what games use it, I've no idea. I remember reading somewhere that at least ones does support it.

    As for the original question, I think it's not possible to load both ATI and NVidia drivers at the same time in Linux. Only Windows XP and 7 seem to be able to do this.

    Nope, the Physx your thinking of is not for the Cuda GPU implementation of it. The Physx SDK for linux was for the original Physx cards.

    Well wine allows you to install the agia physics library and play games like Velevet Assasin, that make use of it.
