If you want to use more than one video card then that implies
that you need at least one that is PCI. I have had success using 5 Matrox PCI
cards (all slots full).
EZFB has built in features for multiple video cards and an
example program that will initialize and put a picture on every working frame
buffer in your system.

Thanks for the pointer. That's
was good information.
I will be adding another video card to my
system soon. Do you know
of a URL that could help with this
task? I don't know if I will be
using a NVidia card or not.
Will the system auto-magically configure
it for this

This bit of magic is "udev". It gets messages from the kernel when
drivers are loaded, and it creates device nodes for you. When using
udev, the /dev filesystem is actually created in a ramdisk, which
explains why the device nodes disappeared when you rebooted.
Now I need to know how to make more Frame Buffer devices!
Typically, you get one frame buffer device node per video card.
(/dev/fb is probably a link to /dev/fb0)
