Dual Screen Mode

I found the link to the xrandr 1.2 wiki to be helpful. 

But it looks like you have 2 external monitors on a single video card. Does the card support this? If you are using separate cards, you might have to define separate busses? 

You might also see if you can get the desired configuration with 8.10 which has X 1.5. 

Can you post your xorg.conf?

I am trying to configure my computer for dual screens, I have looked at this article on the Ubuntu wiki and have tried various changes to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file but now I have both screens in "low resolution" mode and I am stumped. If anyone can help me out I would be grateful. 

I am running a Dell Dimension 2400 and I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 with 2 Hanns-G JC199A monitors.
