Seems like I saw this problem before with Core-2.
Haven't used "system-config-display" since but
manually edit the xorg.conf. We also use the 'nvidia'
driver working with Core-3 in a 3-headed
After you rebooted and X failed, was the xorg.conf
trying to use the 'nvidia' driver and not the 'nv'
driver? Was the nvidia driver loaded (lsmod).

I had exactly the same problem with an ATI Radeon
X300 in dual head
mode, normal X.org drivers. System-config-display
exhibited the same
symptoms - would not allow me to configure dual
head. Like you I had to
creat a suitable config file by hand.

I don't see this problem. I had to disable RHGB or
my system would just
hang during the boot process. I think the hang was
as RHGB tried to
exit / GDM tried to start. Remote access via SSH
