Default TwinView monitors reversed

I'm pretty much a newbie to working with linux yet i've been able to finally get my twinview display to work at 90%... with one issue. My monitors are reversed and I need to swap them. Yes, yes, I could just swap the connectors on the back of the computer but then when i dual boot back into XP i'd have the same situation. Could anyone tell me how to swap the monitors in the XF86Config-4? Here are my current settings:

Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"

Does someone can explain to us why to reorder secondary monitor as SECONDARY monitor and get back primary as primary ????

I've tryed both TwinView and Section "R" in the readme...
