Default Re: KDE fails on second screen

My goal is to have separate X screens, i am a bit confused right now becouse at work i run ubuntu and i have xorg.conf like this:

# nvidia-settings:  version 260.19.06  (buildd@palmer)  Mon Oct  4 16:01:38 UTC 2010

#ngs: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

and basicly it behave like separate screens , so I didnt really bothered about it as long as it was working.

At home I run gentoo and when I bought second screen I tried to configure in the same way as in work but nothing is this same twinView stretch desktop on two screens but I dont want this behavior (thats why I made changes in xorg.conf).

Naturally I tried separate X screen configurations generated by nvidia-settings, but result is that the second screen is whole black, I checked Xorg log and nothing look suspiciously (no EE ot WW), i dont know what to do next ?

Sorry for my bad english
