This is an Xorg Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.8.2 config file. The config file xorg.conf is configured for two Nvidia cards. Both use the binary driver from Nvidia. The first video card is a dual head GeForce2 MX 400. The second card is a single head GeForce4 4000. Monitors are hooked up to all three heads and Xinearama is being used to make one big screen (desktop).
