MSI NVIDIA GF 6600GT / Dual dipsplay problem
 
Actualy its not a 'problem' since I dont have any idea how to edit my XFree86.config...
I'm running mandrake 10.1 OE, with the latest nvidia driver. How do I edit the XF86.config so I can have dual display. I have my primary 19" aoc tft on the ANALOG out and my trusty 17" crt on the DVI (using ANALOG CONVERTER) out.
Also, there is this problem with the nvidia driver. It doesn't load at boot so I have to modprobe it every time the machine boots. How do I make this module load by default (notice my MODULE SECTION in the XF86.config --- I edited it thi sway but it s probably not right).

thanks ppl

my XF86.config is like this:

Below is my working dual CRT config file (the parts that matter, though I'm not sure what the DRI thing is at the bottom). I don't know what would be different for an LCD other than the line that says CRT,CRT probably would have to have one of them changed. There are docs that come with the driver that tell what all of the options are.

Code:
