Dual Monitors... issues


I'm trying to set up dual monitors in Mandrake 10.1 Beta, but it doesnt seem to want to do it. I have read almost every document known to man, but none of them apply to my situation. Ok here it is. My computer has a built in graphics card (intel extreme graphics) I also have a old 64mb GeForce 4 PCI card. Any ideas on how to set them up? So far I only have the GeForce working, linux seems to reconize the intel extreme graphics, but wont use it. From what I have read you'll need to look at my XF86Config file, so here it is (good luck, its all greek to me)
