Default TwinView in RedHat 8

I've gotten the nVidia drivers installed successfully. Unreal Tounament and Return to Castle Wolfenstein both work wonderfully.

I can't get anything to show up on my second monitor though. Here's an excerpt from my XF86Config:

Option "TwinView" "on"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "28-85"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50-160"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024, 1280x1024; 1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, NULL"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, CRT"

I'm using two identical monitors (Samsung SyncMaster 955DF).

As I said, the games work fine. I run them at 800x600, and they're displayed full-screen on the 1st monitor, as they should be.

On the desktop, however, I have the resolution set to 1280x1024. Only the first screen displays anything, but the desktop seems to be larger than 1280x1024 (but smaller than 2560x1024). That is, if I move my mouse past the right edge of the screen, it scrolls. Nothing ever displays on the second monitor, though.

Any ideas?
