Unhappy problems with dual heads

I have been having a lot of problems trying to get both of my monitors working with my new card. I can get Twinview going, but I want to have two seperate screens, each with their own menus, etc. Whenever I try to setup two seperate screens, I get the following warning in the X log:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Multiple displays connected, but only one display allowed;
(WW) NVIDIA(0): using first display

My only guess would be that I have the BusID setup wrong for the two Device sections.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Driver Version: 1.0-4496

Nope, I sorry. I ended up installing Windows XP Professional instead. I still miss the terminal, but Linux is just not ready for anything but power-users at this point.

Where is your Screen 0 ?
you need may be to replace Screen 0 by Screen 1
and Screen 1 by Screen 2

here my XF86Config-4
geforce TI4400, 2 CRT (19' and 17'), driver 5336 and it works fine

I'm dealing with the same problem, already have a thread on it with no responses. I would use twinview but I want overlay for tv out for movies. I'm surprised more people don't have this problem. What good is twinview for tv out if you can't even play back movies/watch tv via a tv tuner with no overlay?
