I tried that script using the following inputs:

Driver "nvidia"
Option "NvAGP" "3"
Option "DigitalVibrance" "0"
Option "TransparentIndex" "0"
Option "CursorShadowAlpha" "64"
Option "CursorShadowXOffse" "4"
Option "CursorShadowYOffset" "2"
Option "Twinview" "TRUE"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "0"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "0"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768 , 1820x1024"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT , CRT"


I put them here: (where the "#" are with the exception of the "driver" line)

Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce FX5600"
BusID "1:5:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0
######################
VendorName "NVidia"
EndSection

This failed and I had to go to the backup file..... My left monitor is a TFT flat screen does this matter? I also tried just using one line: Option "Twinview" "TRUE" This did not work either... I used XF86Config as the script build option also... and I used "1280x1024, 1280x1024" in metemodes to trie balance and then I also took everything out but the twinveiw option.... it always went to the same screen... never went twinview...

Anybody got any suggestions? Thanks!
