Default two X screens

problem solved...

Option "UseDisplayDevice" "string"

When assigning display devices to X screens, the NVIDIA X driver by default assigns display devices in the order they are found (looking first at CRTs, then at DFPs, and finally at TVs). This option can be used to override this assignment. For example, if both a CRT and a DFP are connected, you could specify:

Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"

to make the X screen use the DFP, even though it would have used a CRT by default.

Note the subtle difference between this option and the "ConnectedMonitor" option: the "ConnectedMonitor" option overrides what display devices are actually detected, while the "UseDisplayDevice" option controls which of the detected display devices will be used on this X screen.
