i'm trying to kick the nvidia habit on  my desktops, so i'm using nouveau, but 
the simplest xorg.conf i have is:

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "DVI-I-0"
        Option       "LeftOf" "VGA-0"
        Option       "PreferredMode" "1680x1050"

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "VGA-0"
        Option       "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Device0"
        Driver      "nouveau"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Device0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     24

Section "Extensions"
        Option      "Composite" "Disable"

And it works like a charm and givesme two separate workspaces in KDE.  -A
