Care to share your config file?

I just got the latest copy of Linux Journal in today, and what do you 
know, there's a section on dual-head configuration.

I've looked at this one, another for g450 which configures more like 
mine, since it's a single card with two video outputs.  I've checked out 
the Xinerama howto.  I keep getting a sig. 11 failure.

Anyone else had any success with dual-head???

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
