Thank you Tommy!
It is moving!

Then the next question would be how to have 2 steppers for my x axis?
I setup 0 and 1 in pncconf for x axis, but only see 01 in the hal, should i double the code and change 01 to 00, or just parallel the 2 drives from 01?

Both ways will work just fine, but it is much better to use the separate wiring and provisions in HAL as you can use Gantry homing, or separate homing for the same axis, meaning you can have the gantry square itself at every homing sequence, editable in the ini file.
Personally i use the second version always on gantry machines ( machines with 2 separate motors and drives for the same axis )
Have a look at the documentation, plenty of information there that broadens your understanding of what is possible with Linuxcnc.
BTW, this is very important, set the homing sequence to -1 for the axis that uses 2 motors.
