Xinerama monitors are above each other

I'm trying to get dual monitors working and i've got both on but each is above eachother, instead of it being across from eachother. I can easily drag windows across the monitors but i would just like this fixed. I don't have the monitors on top of eachother, if you can picture that.

In "ScreenLayout" of my xf86config-4 file i have this,
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen"
Screen "Screen 1" Rightof "Default Screen"
InputDevice "Generic Keyboard"
InputDevice "Configured Mouse"
InputDevice "Generic Mouse"
Option "Xinerama" "true"

no matter what i do: leftof, rightof, below, above, the monitors are above each other. Thanks.
