Default configure multiple screen desktops

hi all,

I'm trying to configure my NVidia Geforce2 card to give me separate desktop workspaces between two displays. I have Twinview working as one display or as a clone, I can't seem to find the right config to split my workspaces.

Attached is my config file which gives me a cloned view, any suggestions are very appreciated!! I thought I did everything according to the README file.
