Default Xinerama with nvidia driver, Ubuntu 10.04

So I have 2 video cards.... I wanted each monitor (2, 22" monitors) hooked up to each video card so that it doesn't push any single card into a non-low power state, making it very loud and hot (this gtx 470 is ridiculous for that...)

I'm having issues though, whenever I enable Xinerama in the nvidia driver it just loops when it tries to start the xserver, apparently crashing. Any advice?

... also, I was un aware that nvnews was the "official" Linux support forum.... go US!
