Default Looking for explanation of driver options!

After many trials and tribulations, I managed to get the nVidia drivers installed. I had to install the kernel module, which hadn't been done for some reason. That didn't take long, actually finding the object file did!

Anyway, the drivers are installed and working nicely, except I'm attempting to get TwinView working, and I'm not entirely sure what all the options are! If someone knows of a document describing the options, and/or giving examples, 'd be very appreciative! Alternatively, someone could do a quick rundown of the main ones.

The options I'm particularly confused about are:
  • ConnectedMonitor
  • ConnectedMonitors
  • TVStandard
  • TVOutFormat
  • RenderAccel
  • CursorShadow (and all it's variants)
  • TwinView
  • TwinViewOrientation
  • MetaModes
  • TVOverscan
  • IgnoreDisplayDevices
I've got a bit of an idea what a few of them might be, and what to put as their properties, but the others I'm just totally confused about!

I assume you haven't read this document, if you're looking for additional explanation beyond this, I can't help (haven't done TwinView myself)
See Appendix I.

Ahh, that was very helpful! I skimmed over the readme very quickly, and didn't notice that before. Thanks!
