Dual Screen in Ubuntu


I hate to create yet another thread about a dual monitor setup in Ubuntu, as I have trawled through loads this evening already.

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 710v and a Samsung SyncMaster 710mp both attached to a Radeon X300. One via a VGA to DVI adapter. One straight to VGA.

My xorg.conf file currently looks like this. I can't see what I'm doing wrong or a next step.

EDIT: My Server Layout section has changed. No errors in the log file now but still no dual screen action!
