I just installed ubuntu 8.10 and everything started up great. Unfortunately, I then decided to add in an nvidia GeForce mx4000 vdeo card and stick an svideo cable going to my tv from the nvidia card. The primary adapter is my integrated video adapter. Now, x doesn't start, even if I run "/home/user/xorg.conf.test" after a reconfigure of nvidia.

When I run the new xorg.conf, I get a gray screen with a black x that moves around the screen but no icons. Can anyone offer me a barebones xorg.conf to get me up and running? I also have never attempted a multihead system in ubuntu before but I really want to since this PC was built exclusively for MythTV and flight simulation.
