Well, I kinda want to work out the bugs by hand on the config. I've 
gotten it down pretty good, but I'm missing one little thing.

I'm not looking to run the nvidia in twinview, but I'll turn on Xinerama 
after I get it all to work. If I just turn it on right now, I get cloned 
displays on the nvidia. Actually I haven't tried it since getting the 
matrox in. I guess my next step if i can't get this to go is Xinerama.
