Default Re: Dual Head with Linux...

I'm back
well, the last time i thought it's good to have one screen, today I think, It's better to have two one ^^
I worked a little on my xorg.conf
bit I've got a question, I've got two categories "devices", there I declared my two video cards. i know the the pci BusID of my geForce 5200. but what's about the PCIe Card GeForce 660GT? Which ID do this one have?

this is my xorg.conf:

Code:
# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Multihead layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" LeftOf "Screen1"
	Screen      1  "Screen1" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
	Option	    "Xinerama" "off"
	Option	    "Clone" "on"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the 
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
	RgbPath      "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
	FontPath     "unix/:7100"
#########ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions"#####################################################################
	ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"
EndSection

Section "Module"
	Load  "dbe"
	Load  "extmod"
	Load  "fbdevhw"
	Load  "glx"
	Load  "record"
	Load  "freetype"
	Load  "type1"
	Load  "dri"
EndSection


Section "InputDevice"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
#	Option	"Xleds"		"1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
#	Option	"XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
# or:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
#	Option	"XkbVariant"	"nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:nocaps"
#
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"

now i comment out the one screen to do not go into trouble, but without the BusID of the second card I can't use dual head, what a cognition ^^
i would be really glad, if one of you could tell me, how can I ascertain the BusID.
Do you see some mistakes I did in the xorg.conf?

edit: now i got a way to find out the ID, i only must install lspci.. if i would have this id, do the conf file contains some mistakes, ore could run dual head with this without errors?
