Post Configuring multiple x screens on one card

I have a Geforce 4 MX 440 PCI dual vga out
and a Geforce 4 ti4200 AGP.

I currently have twinview enabled on the mx440, and everything is working good, but I don't want to use twin view anymore. I want the two display heads to be independent. When I followed the readme appendix R directions I got all kinds of error messages. Here is my config file:

Default my xfree config for multiple x screens

Hello,

I don't understand what you have in your "SeverLayout" section.

I have it working, so here is my XF86Config-4 file :

I've had some problems with 4496 driver with TV out (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...5&pagenumber=1).
So I'm using the 4363 version which works fine with me (except video overlay is only on screen 0 - hoping that Nvidia would allow us soon to select which screen for that - I have a little hack for that using nv-tv-out with the NVIDIA TV encoder chip using this xfree configuration that I can explain if anybody cares).
