nvidia-glx-new and TwinView

what works for me:

- install the nvidia drivers (as you have)
- install the nvidia-settings package
- Run: System->Administration->Nvidia X Server Settings

That will give you a GUI interface for your video hardware! Works much
like other OS's resolution/monitor setup apps. Handles TwinView very
nicely. And writes the config to your xorg.conf and all.
