Default TwinView on Ubuntu Edgy

Let me start by saying that I'm new to Linux. And that I've been trying for 3 days to get my monitors working the way I'd like with limited success.

Software : Ubuntu Edgy 6.10, Nvidia-GLX drivers, Beryl/Compiz With Emerald, TwinView Enabled.
Hardware : Nvidia GeForce 5500FX video card, Xerox XG-92d LCD monitor (DVI), LG Flatron L1930B LCD monitor (VGA)

Current Problems:

Resolution must be set at 2048x768 or the Xerox goes black and the LG displays half black/half desktop. I would like to be able to use a higher resolution, atleast on the Xerox monitor. Setting metamodes to values which are not equal (IE 1024x768; 2048x1024 has had no effect.

I have two users. Logging in as the second user after restarting X disables the Xerox monitor. Logging in as the second user after i've been logged in as the first user without restarting X fixes this problem. Beryl does not work for the second user under any circumstances.

TwinView does not allow me to maximize a window in only one monitor. The window spans both. I'd like to fix this problem even if it means not being able to drag windows between monitors.
