Twinview/Dual Monitor problem


I'm 'new' to linux I'm have a alot of fun tring to get my box to take dual monitors. I have searched and searched to try to figure out what I'm going wrong.
This is what I have got.

Geforce FX5900 dual head video card...
I have Installed the lastest Nvidia drivers...
Below is a copy of my XF86Config File which is what I'm running right now. ANY help to get this to work would be GREAT... THANKS EVERYONE
