Default how? dual-head panasonic 42 inch plasma TH-42PD50U

I am a linux newbie basically. I just set up a fedora core build. I installed the nvidia drivers and and set them as the display drivers. i want to run dual-head spanning monitors with my 19" and 42 " plasma i got it to work once but the plasma was at 1600x1200 and it was too high. Anyways I can't make it work again.

System is using generic nvidia drivers for some reason... I see drivers for all the cards around mine but not 5900 xt specfically.

I want to know how to set up the plasma as monitor1 & screen1, i've experimented a little with editing the xorg.conf i don't know the refresh rates i should use

K i've done more researchign and figure that i have to enable a twinview switch in the device section and set the vert and horizontal refresh rates

should look somethign like this

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
Option "Twinview" "On"
Option "TwinviewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "31.5 - 94.0"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50.0 - 90.0"
Option "MetaModes" "1024X780"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection



what should i set the vert and horizontal rates as for a plasma tv?
