Default Configure WS Tech USB-DVI in Linux Mint 11 for 3rd monitor?

I am trying to get a DisplayLink USB-DVI adapter configured to drive a 3rd monitor. The adapter came with a disk with a libdlo-0.1.2 driver. The system recognized the device as /dev/fb1, but at this point all I am getting is a green screen on the monitor. (The testing of the driver during the driver install worked correctly.)

Searching for info on how to get this configured seems to point to getting xorg.conf configured properly.

I ran Xorg -configure and am now trying to tweak it to see if I make any headway. Does anyone know what Modules and Files loaded in the modules and Files section? I am not a developer so my knowledge is a little limited in this area.

The generated xorg.conf contains:

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi"
FontPath "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType"
FontPath "built-ins"

Section "Module"
Load "dri2"
Load "dri"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "extmod"
Load "dbe"
