question about xorg.conf
So what its come down to is that even though I have my own linux biases, I've been doing a lot of distro-hopping recently. Its made me wonder, if I get xorg.conf set up PERFECTLY (im doing dual head monitors, two sepearte desktops, and I want as many bells and whistles as possible) in one distro, does that mean it will work in another distro that uses xorg.cof?
To rephrase my question more simply, "If I get disto X to set up my xorg.conf perfectly, could I overwrite xorg.conf on distro Y and the config work whenever I boot into that distro?"
Yes. As long as it's xorg, not xfree. And you have installed all the needed:

You should be able to use xorg.conf of one distro in another. Most of latest distros don't even have any data in xorg.conf file. Fedora and Ubuntu's xorg.conf files are empty in my machine.
Thanks guys. I d'ld about 3 distros that supposedly have good graphical tools for dualhead. We'll see what happens. Thanks for your replies!
You are Welcome and do let us know how it goes. :)
