Default TwinView: Only one display allowed

This is the output from XFree86.0.log:

(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU detected as: GeForce4 Ti 4600
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoRAM: 131072 kBytes
(--) NVIDIA(0): Detected TV Encoder: Brooktree 871
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Multiple displays connected, but only one display allowed;
(WW) NVIDIA(0): using boot display
(the whole log is here: http://home.no/moonfire/XFree86.0.log )

Why isn't this working, as far as I can see, my XF86Config file (found here: http://home.no/moonfire/XF86Config ) looks OK, the only thing I am bit unsure of is the
Option "ConnectedMonitor"
part. If my monitor is connected to a DVI port on my card, by using an DVI -> VGA adapter, what should it say? I don't think DDC works when using the adapter...

Any suggestions?

Your Options are in the wrong section in XF86Config, I think.

I believe they belong in the Device section, NOT the Screen section. Try moving them, and see if that helps. I think that X doesn't recognize that you want TwinView enabled, and putting the option in a recognizable place would fix that.
