I'm sorry, I spoke too soon. You need to set up another screen, but I
actually don't know how to do that part (anyone else give this a stab?)
for a video card that has two outputs. But, once you have that done, do
something similar to:
Screen "Screen 0"
Screen "Screen 1" RightOf "Screen 0"
in the "ServerLayout" section at the end. Sorry I can't help you on the
1 video card with two outs thing though, I have no idea about that one.
I'm using two separate cards to do it here.
The Xinerama thing that I recommeded before will extend the desktop
over the two monitors instead of them each having their own task bar,
but I actually prefer not to use Xinerama because it does a lot of other
funky stuff. But try it out and see what you think, don't take my word
