nVidia dual monitoring - help


i'm running Fedora 10 on a 3.2 P4 rig with 7300 GS video pumping out to two monitors (CRT + LCD)

now i've installed nvidia driver and under system tools --> nVidia Display Settings, i enabled my secondry monitor (LCD) and everything runs fine, problem is when i restart it goes back to single screen so i have to re-enable it again...

how can i make this setting permanent (or fixed into fedora)? am i suppose to save the xorg.conf file? i can't from nVidia Display Settings...

Yes, you need to save your xorg.conf file. One way to do this is to run "sudo /usr/bin/nvidia-settings". Be SURE you make a backup of your xorg.conf, first!
