Why not connect the 2 monitors first using 1 DVI and one VGA connector.
When thats working, hookup the TV to the Svideo out.

See if it works

You need a third card preferably an ati so the drivers do not conflict. Just look for a cheap pci card you can usually find them for like 30 bux or so.

Yep, 2 devices max on 1 card. Look for a PCI card with s-video or composite out. How about this.
