Twinview setup


Hi,
I would like to use twinview in mandrake 10.1
I tryed many settings in the readme that comes with the nvidia drivers (61.11) but unfortunatly settings didnt worked at all.

My current hardware:

GeforceFX 5700 Ultra
Viewsonic A90f 19 inch monitor (this monitor is connected through the VGA to DVI connector and this is the MAIN display)
Apple Studio Display 17 inch monitor (plugged into the VGA connector)

My current X config:

Code:
# File generated by XFdrake.

# **********************************************************************
# Refer to the XF86Config man page for details about the format of
# this file.
# **********************************************************************

Section "Files"
    # Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
    # By default, Mandrake 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
    # the X server to render fonts.
    FontPath "unix/:-1"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
    #DontZap # disable <Crtl><Alt><BS> (server abort)
    #DontZoom # disable <Crtl><Alt><KP_+>/<KP_-> (resolution switching)
    AllowMouseOpenFail # allows the server to start up even if the mouse doesn't work
EndSection

    Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension

Only the Viewsonic display is working
My Apple display work well in dual view (windows)

btw, twinview is equivalent to Dual View in windows or horizontal pan? (like 2560x1024)
