Assuming you meant :99.0 and :99.1, and assuming that :0 and :1 have
only one screen each, those are all non-Xinerama configurations.
Xinerama just lets you take multiple screens (like an Intel and a Radeon
card, or two nested screens, or some other mix) and make them *look*
like one screen to clients. Instead, you want the screens on :99 to look
like separate screens to clients.

I wouldn't have even mentioned it except I don't think you'll get what
you're looking for if you're trying to have Xinerama turned on.

I hope the nested driver works well for you!
