Default Dualhead crashes Xwindows

I recently installed 2.6.6 kernel. Reinstalled my NVIDIA drivers so Xwindows would load again. Everything went fine.

I set my display to dualhead (I have a PNY 5600 ULTRA) just to check it out and when I attemted to restart X it just wouldnt.

Fatal server error:
Cannot open log file /var/log/xorg.0.log

I just want to disable the dualhead so it will load xwindows again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Im a noob so a step by step would be great.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Default Re: Dualhead crashes Xwindows

Can you post your xconfig? xorg.conf or xf86config-4
