Ah! So the monitors work, but Xinerama doesn't? Hmm. Well, I think
you have the right stuff in
Screen 0 "Screen" 0 0
Screen 1 "Screen" RightOf "Screen"
My layout was a bit simpler; it was just
Screen "Default Screen"
Screen "Other Screen" RightOf "Default Screen"
..and that seemed to work. I don't know what those 0s and 1s do.
How are you starting X? From a virtual console, with "startx"?
Or with a display manager? (xdm, kdm, gdm) You need to tell the
display manager about Xinerama. I know how to do that for gdm,
but I suspect that SuSE uses kdm, which is different.
And if you are starting X from a virtual console, you need to
mention Xinerama there, too. Something like this:
startx -- +xinerama
