Xinerama with an ATI and an NVidia crashes


so this is my first post but i have finally gotten linux installed. i currently have debian installed i have 2 different video cards installed

Radeon X600
GeForce4 MX 4000

i know you are probably saying, why in the world do i have an ATI and an NVidia in the same box? because i found one lying around and installed it. i have gotten X to start up and i have a separate X session in each monitor.

what i want to do is enable Xinerama but when i put it in to my xorg.conf X wont start at all so basicly i was wondering where the problem lies.

i am using the radeon and nv drivers i have read sometimes the nv drivers dont work and also that the module "glx" may also cause problems. i dont want to invest in a bunch of new video cards to get this to work but i just might have to.

xorg.conf

here is my xorg file
xorg.conf:

Try posting your X log. you can find it at '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' on most distributions.

When you're posting file contents please put them in [code][/code] blocks to distinguish them from the rest of your post. They'll come out looking like this:
Code:
some file contents...
