Default success! FC6 2.6.18-1.2798 TwinView with beta drivers

finally managed to get TwinView working on Fedora 6 2.6.18-1.2798, Xorg 7.1 with a Quadro 200 NVS using the 9625 betas. Haven't seen much success on here for TwinView on FC6, so I thought I'd post my config and what I did in hopes that it helps.

first off, I took the advice in http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=78912 and commented out the include for config.h in nv-linux.h

After that, just ran the nvidia-installer script and, while giving me a couple of warning messages, it installed fine.

fiddled with the nvidia-settings (type nvidia-settings in a console in X) app to get my display just right resulted in the following xorg.conf that works great...
