Well you got that far , did the original ( knoppix generated ) xorg.conf get used at all ( your current one seems a little sparse )

Original file.

Well you got that far , did the original ( knoppix generated ) xorg.conf get used at all ( your current one seems a little sparse )

ILooks reasonable. I hear Intel chipsets can be a problem, so perhaps you should switch to your add - on  cards.
and do it all again ( I hear the groan now ) : )

I tried that but one montor cut out and back in every few seconds and the other monitor remained blank.

Looking at other Linux distros that are more up to date when it comes to configuring monitor resolutions.

I'm currently looking at ArchLinux, which has extensive coverage of dual monitor setups and multi screen resolutions. My project for the coming week!

I'll put the (hopefully) working xorg.conf here when it's ready....

Good to hear .
The problems are actually with X11 (which is separate from Linux ), I'm surpised on how some of the old tools have fallen to the wayside........
