duel monitors in FC5


i know this is been posted before but i cant seem to make heads or tails of any of it i even looked on nvidia for help to no avail so far all i get is color blocks on my second monitor i just switched for mandrake to FC5 here is my xorg.config file stuff

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, a font server independent of the X server is
# used to render fonts.

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:

# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

OK i got both monitors to work and they show the same screen. only now when i try to set duel monitors in the desktop controls it tells me (Your X server does not support resizing and rotating the display. Please update to version 4.3 or greater. You need the X Resize And Rotate extenstion (RANDR)version 1.1 or greater to use this feature).

what did i do wrong.

here is my new Xconfig file

You should change the Screen>Driver setting from "vesa" to "nvidia". That's the whole purpose of installing the driver (nvidia).
