Default Kubuntu Feisty - 8800GTS - dual 1680x1050

I'm on Kubuntu 7.04. I have an eVga 8800GTS and I'm trying to use 2 Dell 2007WFP monitors. I used adept to add nvidia-glx (version 1.0.9755...see below), and then I ran nvidia-xconfig --twinview (also tried without the twinview), and restarted. However, I only get a black screen. If I press ctrl+alt+f1, I get a text login (that you can't see...however, if I type my username and press enter, I can see the password prompt). I had to log in, and set the driver back to vesa.
Code:
aaroncampbell@aaron-linux:~$ aptitude show nvidia-glx | grep -i version
Version: 1.0.9755+2.6.20.4-13.12
I tried running nvidia-settings, but I only get a few irrelevant settings, so I ran it from console, and this is the output:
Code:
aaroncampbell@aaron-linux:~$ nvidia-settings

ERROR: NV-CONTROL extension not found on this Display.


ERROR: Unable to determine number of NVIDIA GPUs on ':0.0'.


ERROR: Unable to determine number of NVIDIA Frame Lock Devices on ':0.0'.


ERROR: Unable to determine number of NVIDIA VCSCs on ':0.0'.

Also, here is my current xorg.conf:
