Do you mean with a VGA and DVI connector?

And since when is XP a good example of how to configure X? ;-)

This could be the reason why you are not seeing a mouse cursor...

Try adding

    Option "AutoAddDevices"  "off"

to your "ServerLayout" section, and remove any AllowEmptyInput lines. Or
install and configure and start sysutils/hal before starting Xorg. For myself
I find it easier to build the Xorg server without hal support and use the
option shown above, so I don't have to deal with hald.

It looks like a correct resolution is found and activated.

As an aside, and not related to your problem, you might want to try the
xf86-video-nouveau instead of nv. It is under heavier development and is
working toward supporting 3D accelleration and supporting newer chips.

Normally, you'd expext to see some stuff from the mouse and keyboard drivers
last in the logfile... Since theay are missing, and seeing the warning printed
above, your problem isn't what it seems to be. I think the server gets stuck
because it can't find a keyboard and mouse. That would explain why you don't
see a cursor.
