Default nVidia twinview settings not saved after restart

Now I'm using Mandriva 2007 and I installed the nVidia drivers with the control panel. At the nVidia settings window I setup twinview with a resolution of 1600 x 1200, with the second monitor as an extension, so not as clone. I set this via the position right off setting. When I press the apply button everything works fine. I also pressed the button save to x configuration file.
The problem is when I restart the x-server, so log-off and log-on again, or restart the pc, these settings are gone. First the twinview settings are completely gone, so I set these up again and restarted the xserver and then both monitors where at a resolution of 800 x 600. I tried to change the settings several times, but every time the settings change after restart.
What could be the problem ?

Only root can save changes to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Unless you were running nvidia-settings as root, the behavior you've described is expected.
