Re: FC5 - dual display w/ GeForce2

I attached a fresh copy of my xorg.conf file.  When I run "nvidia-xconfig -a --twinview" all references to the second display disappear.  Thank you Lonni for giving a suggestion.

Redhat's tools are completely unaware of what the nvidia driver can
accomplish.  If you want to use two displays, try running as root:
nvidia-xconfig -a --twinview

and then restart X.
