I have 2 video cards- one AGP nvidia which works fine, and am ATI radeon 7500 PCI card.

I have one flat panel display connected to the nvidia, and two flat panels connected to the ati- one with a vga connection, and one with a flat-panel connnection- the card is dual-headed or whatever.

I can't setup the xorg file to work with all 3 monitors- at the moment I don't care if the two ATI cards display the same thing- as long as I have 2 monitors to work on, it will be a start.

I have re-written the xorg.conf file so many times it ain't funny anymore.

So, right now, here is the latest that I have, where only the nvidia display works at full 1440x900 resolution-

ANY help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

By the way, I have already tried using the main xinerama setup walkthru (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1773624)

Alright, I have all 3 monitors working individually. If I enable xinerama, it will only let me use one card.

heres the current xorg.conf file...
