(sorry Keith for not responding to the ml, hit the wrong button... ;( )

Not using any  xorg.conf I get the "Can't go bigger than 1920 error".
I'm assumming now that my problem is my virual size setting.  I guess
I need to figure out how to set sizes per monitor....

Here's my xorg.conf::

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Intel"
	Driver	"i810"
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"Generic Monitor"

Section "Screen"
       Identifier      "Default Screen"
       Device          "Intel"
       Monitor         "Generic Monitor"
       SubSection "Display"
               Depth           24
               Virtual         3320 1200
