Default noob question about twinview

i can't seem to figure out how to get twinview working.
i know it has to do with changing my x config file, but i am brand new to linux and the first time i tried to change it,x crashed and i had to reinstall.
i know i have installed the driver ok cause i get the nvidia splash right before x starts
if some one could help me i would sure appriciate it.
i have 2 identical crt's fx 5200 geforce
it sees them but only one works, here is my config file, can someone tell me what to change please?

what kind of help forum is this anyway?
why do people even bother to post questions here,NO ONE will help any way!
i posted my question about 3 days ago and no reply?i guess everybody that uses this forum are dumbass noobies like me.well luckily after hours on end of editing and crashing and reinstalling i happened to stumble onto the solution.
i don't know what i did but i managed!thanks alot for all the ****ing help on this board!i wiill not be back cause this forum is NO HELP WHAT SO EVER!
i am going back to a real help forum where people help the inexperienced noobs instead of lettting them suffer(and probably laughing the whole time)
when alll it could take is one measly little sentence that would solve the delema.so in closing thanks for all the ****ing help
