Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Latest Nvidia drivers patched to install under 2.6.10
Asus K8V Deluxe (VIA board)
BFG 6800 Ultra (dual DVI)
17 inch LCD as my primary screen
19 inch CRT as my secondary screen
As of right now, my CRT is working fine but my LCD will not display. I want the LCD to be primary and the CRT secondary.
The only reason the twinview stuff is commented out is because even with it not commented out, it doesn't work. If I remember correctly, when I startx with all of the twinview stuff enabled, it gives me an error that there are no useable screens .....
I got it working without enabling xinerama! I was reading the xorg log file and noticed that both of my montiors were being scanned and the defualt modes were ok. Though metamode could not have any negative values! So now meta mode is "1280x1024,1280x1024,1280x1024,1280x1024"
Bam and it works... again SORTA
My CRT is still my primary monitor ( AKA my taskbar is over there )
I thought with twinview enabled I would not need, two monitor,device and screen sections ?
Since I don't have an Nvidia card, I can't speak from experience - you may be right, but I have
gotten the impression (reading/working with other posts here at LQ) that even with Nvidia cards,
Xinerama works - and thus you need 2 monitors, screens & cards.
If it does turn out that you don't, please let me (and others) know what & how.
I'de like to know out of general interest.
glad to hear its working - could you post your working xorg.conf file?
