Yes, that is what I meant.. although I was forgetting the term "xinerama". To use TwinView you do need to install the nVIDIA driver... so not using what is supplied by Fedora.

BigFish:
First, be aware that as a user, and not a linux tester, you should not update your Fedora 1.91 into the 1.92 range or newer (specifically do not update the kernel) until FC2 is released. That will break many things you do not want to deal with.

Install the kernel-source and the nvidia driver (downloaded from the nvidia driver archive at nvidia.com). Then follow the instructions for installing it found in the README they have posted where you download the driver.

Skip the Xorg installation, unless you will be updating your system before FC2 is released. (contrary to my suggestion - linux is about choice afterall)
