>xorg.conf

>  I’ve been doing some serious computer re-installs over the past couple of days. I was very unhappy with my computer – which all started when I discovered I couldn’t play Yahoo games in Firefox. Ironically, I still can’t. The Java Runtime plugin just isn’t working.

  Anyhow, The biggest hassle is always rebuilding my xorg.conf file, which is somewhat complex – I use a dual head video card (Evga Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT) with two different monitors (CRT Panasonic S17 at 1024×768, and an LCD ViewSonic VX924 at 1280×1024), along with the closed source Nvidia drivers, but not in Twinview. In any case, for posterity sake, here’s my configured xorg.conf -I hope someone else finds this useful.
