I have connected two mouse and two keyboard (one PS/2 and the other USB). I have also connected two monitors and i am getting displays on both the screens. I am also able to move my cursor on both the screens.

I am having trouble in configuring xorg.conf. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop on my PC and I have also installed kdm bcoz gdm does not support multiseat(is there a way to downgrade to gdm 2.20 or can i modify gdm 2.30 to support multiseat???). When i boot my PC i get the kdm login screen and then I boot into gnome session.. (is it ok ?? or do I need to install Kubuntu??)
Also, I have one onboard nvidia graphics 6150SE and I have put one nvidia 8400GS 512Mb in the 16X PCIe slot for the additional seat...

So kindly tell me what should I do now or what things are missing ?? For any further info abt my PC plz tell me to post outputs(specify the commands for the same..)

Hi warrior!
excuse me if I point you to a basic document, but you have not mentioned it: have you followed the multiseat HOWTO?
