Default Twinview help!

Hello,

Trying to get Twinview to work for my Redhat 8 system. I feel that I am very close, because last time I rebooted, the Linux boot dialogs occurred on my "second" monitor, and then when it got to the KDE login screen, it switched over to my primary monitor. But Twinview definitely isn't working, because my 2nd monitor is now not showing anything. Here's the pertinent info from my XF86config file:

----------------------------------

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Dell P1110"
HorizSync 30.0 - 121.0
VertRefresh 48.0 - 160.0
Option "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor1"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "smaller monitor"
HorizSync 31.7 - 37.5
VertRefresh 50.0 - 70.0
Option "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Device"
# no known options
#BusID
Option "TwinView" "on"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "<31.7 - 37.5>"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "<50.0 - 70.0>"
Option "MetaModes" "<1152X864,800X600; 1152X864,800X600>"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, CRT"
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen1"
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Monitor "Monitor1"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

------------------------------------------------

Please help! This would be a huge improvement on my Linux box at work. Also, I didn't change anything in this area of this file....should I?:

---------------------------------------------------
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Server Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"
EndSection

-----------------------------------------------------

Thanks,

Matt
