Default Dual Monitor Help

I have a installed Fedora Core 6 x86_64 on my computer and I have two Viewsonic VA1930wm monitors hooked up to my GeForce 7600 GT pci express video card. The first monitor was autoconfigured and shows up as a Viewsonic VA1930wm and works perfect. I have attempted to get the other monitor running but it makes me configure manually, and the Viewsonic VA1930wm monitor is not listed. Does anyone know how to get it to autoconfigure for dual head, or even better how I can add my monitor to the list. Someone told me to read the nVidia manual for Twinview but I cannot find any manual that applies to Linux. Someone also told me the xorg.conf file would help so here it is:

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Default Re: Dual Monitor Help

I installed the nvidia-xconfig file and proceeded to run nvidia-xconfig --twinview. I recieved the message printed at the end of the post. After I rebooted xserver failed to start and I had to start with fresh set up. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".

WARNING: Unable to find CorePointer in X configuration; attempting to add new
CorePointer section.


WARNING: The CorePointer device was not specified explicitly in the layout;
using the first mouse device.

Option "TwinView" "True" added to Screen "Screen0".
Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
