As long as the first screen entry references a different device and
monitor than the second screen entry, you should be alright. I rarely
leave the default names (Identifier) on anything in xorg.conf. My two
monitors are called CRT and TFT, my device entries are called i915G_0
and i915G_1 and my screens are called screen0 (references i915G_0 and
CRT) and screen1 (references i915G_1 and TFT), just to avoid
confusion. :)
