Default Multiple X Screens with GeForce2 Go

Hello,

I have a Dell Inspiron 8000 notebook (P3-1GHz, 512MB RAM, 48GB HD, etc.) with an nVidia GeForce2 Go display adapte, and recently installed Red Hat Linux 9 on it. I want to run two X screens on my two displays, the notebook's built-in LCD and an external flat panel monitor. I followed the instructions in the README for the nVidia drivers, but it doesn't work. When I start X, the NVidia comes up on the laptop LCD, the caps and scroll lock keys start flashing, and the machine totally hangs. I see nothing of particular interest in the logs.

For what it's worth, I _was_ successful in setting up the DualView feature on this system. I'm just curious if I'd like having the two separate X screens better. Any ideas? I'm posting the offending XF86Config file below.

Thanks,
Martin

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"

# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
