Default TwinView XF86Config-4 problems

I'm trying to get the dual-head working on my GeForce4 ti4400 on Mandrake 9.2. I don't think i totally understand what they're trying to say with configuring the XF86Config-4 file. I get an error when trying to start X with the other screen enabled. I know the driver itself is working because when I startx i see the nvidia logo. Here i a copy of my XF86Config-4 and below that is what error I get. Some stuff is cut out that didn't really have anything to do with it. I'm using two identical LCD screens. One is hooked up to the VGA plug, the other is using the DVI.

And here is basically what it says when I startx.

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failure to construct a valid mode list: no modes remaining.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): ************** Aborting **************
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a useable configuration.

Fatal Server Error:
no screens found
Thanks a lot for any help.
