dual monitors on Suse 9.2 with nvidia card


does anyone have an xorg.conf or F86Config file to get two viewsonic monitors working with an nvidia 5700LE card? I get a clone off the first during startup until xwindow starts then either nother or a low res clone of monitor 0. Sytem comes up fine when I boot to windows xp as dual desktop but trying to wean myself off of the ole windows.......dual opteron, homemade job running 64bit suse 9.2
cheers

If you are using twinview, then disable xinerama or vice-versa. They both do the same thing.

I am using twin-view myself, and it works great. I use 2 identical CRT monitors. You can see my xorg.conf here:
