Default How to enable "Twinview" + "rotated one monitor" in redhat?

Hi guys,

I got a situation that one 22" monitor and one rotated 90 degree 17" monitor are connected to a 9500GT display card.
My computer have just be installed RedHat Enterprise 6.0 Beta (Santiago), X Window is working fine -application can be dragged between this two screens.

However, after installing NVidia driver (version 195.36.24), I found the screen of the 17" monitor cannot be rotated in Twinview mode - Redhat treat them as one screen, and "option rotate left" rotated whole screen.
In separate X screen mode, my screen of the 17" monitor can be rotated 90 degree, and keep 0 degree for the 22" monitor, but applications cannot be dragged between this two screens.

Did anyone have the experience to enable "Twinview" + "rotated one monitor" in Linux?

BTW, "Desktop Effects" cannot be turned on even this driver was installed. Do you have idea too?


You could have reference my xorg.conf:
