Default TwinView help?

Okay, so I've tried everything in the ReadMe trying to get TwinView to work. I have a two-port GeForce 4 ti4600 (one VGA and one DVI adapted to VGA) with a CRT attached to the VGA and a LCD attached to the DVI. When I load up my edited XF86Config-4 I get an image on the second monitor, but nothing on the first. My XF86Config-4 is below, can anyone help me? Has anyone had this problem?
I've commented out the stuff I added, it's sort of a Xinerama/TwinView hybrid at the moment...
