AWESOME! that worked! Thank You! now...i have one final question, since i'm telling it to use the LCD, how would i go about getting dual-monitor working...or would i use what i'm using now plus that 'Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"' option?

here's the device section currently with the 8776 driver:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go]"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "TwinView" "yes"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768;800x600,800x600"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "DFP-0 LeftOf CRT-0"
