Unhappy Configuring XF86Config-4 To have Dual Monitors (One big screen)


I'm sort of a novice when it comes to Linux (debian). I'm trying to configure my machine to run dual monitors. I have one dual-head graphics gard - the exact model is nVidia Quadro FX 1400. Oh, and it is a PCI model. Here's what's in my XF86Config-4 file now......it's not working. Please Please help me. What I'm I doing wrong????
