If you are using the built in nvidia 'twinview' then it should just *work* if
it's set up correctly in your Xfree/Xorg config. That's how it works here.
KDE doesn't require any special configuration to use multiple monitors it's
all handled by the X server.
Identifier "GeForce FX5200"
Option "Twinview" "1"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "crt, crt"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "31.5-70.0"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60-120"
Option "MetaModes" "1152x864, 1152x864; 1024x768, 1024x768;"
