In poor taste, I'm responding to my own message.  I'm still seeking
help.  I've included my xorg.conf file.  Screen0 works great by
itself.  Screen1 works great by itself.  Together, they lock the
system up hard core.  I get a nVidia logo on my CRT monitor and a nice
solid lock-up that will only go away if I power cycle the system.  Any
tips would be helpful.
