It's on a desktop and the monitors showed as present immediately after 
installation. I tried setting them to twinview like the gentoo system 
has, and after rebooting it no longer saw the second monitor.

As I said before, this isn't important to me, I was just trying it out 
to see what was new and reporting on my findings. Don't bother trouble 
shooting it anymore
Both monitors didn't come up in the live cd either.
