Dual head on Fedora 8 with HP monitor

I am running FC 8. I have 2 HP L2045w monitors - one of them is detected by the system just fine. The other one is detected when the system boots up but it disappears when I get to the GUI login prompt (KDE).

I have gone to the Display setting -> Dual Head & selected HP LP2465 Flat Panel Monitor and restart X and I cannot get to X anymore. I cannot find HP L2045w in the HP list but my monitor0 is detected as HP L2045w perfectly fine by the system.

I tried changing the Monitor1 section similar to Monitor0 but that didn't work.

Here's my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file

Thanks for any help.
