Default Geoforce2 Go on Dell 8200 Dual Head

Ok..

I need to see an XF86Config for a Geoforce2 go on a laptop that is in dual head mode (individual desktops, not twinview). Can someone post one or help me out?

Thanks!

yeah.. I keep ending up with my system dropping core and locking up. I am not an Xfree guru, or I would probably have figured it out. what I do need is a sample to work from that I know is working. Twinview I managed to get going ok. But, it doesn't do exactly what I need.

I have found plenty of twinview examples and 2 card examples, but none where the single board is supporting 2 desktops.

yes. and still no luck.. I am absolutely beating my head against the wall. I have tried probably a hundred different configurations trying to get it to work.. still no go. If I can get it up and running I am going to write a FAQ and post my config file online to help others out there who may be trying to do similar things.
