Multi-monitor Issues on RH9, Geforce 4 Ti Dual Head + TNT2 Single Head


Hi,

Currently running RH9 out of the box, using TwinView to configure a dual head Geforce 4 Ti 4200 to run two monitors, one 19" Philips 109B4 and One old-ish Diamond View 15". I have also (almost) successfully configured a third 15" Diamond View on a Riva TNT2

My problem is, that when the third monitor is configured (using the TNT2) the two monitors using twinview (G4 ti 4200) appear as if they are one large display area, ie, half the gnome bar appears at the bottom of each monitor. Also, the third monitor appears to work as a different desktop, as windows etc, aren't 'draggable' between the first two and the third.

When the third monitor isn't configured, the two monitors attached to the Geforce 4 run as required: One @ 1280x960 and one at 1024x768 with a panning domain to suit.

Can anyone help point out how to configure the three monitors so that the two running from the Geforce 4 stay as they are when the third is configured, and for the third to be part of the same desktop as the first two?

What I'd ultimately like to acheive, is the 19" @ 1280x1024, and the two 15" @ 1024x768 without any kind of panning, and all being a part of the same 'desktop'. Is this possible? Would it require 3 instances of my chosen window manager to be running? Thanks for any help in advance!

Below is my XF86Config, Thanks in advance!
