You guys rock. Anyways, I now have xinerama working on the machine, 
which is very nice. My only final stupid question is "why can't I drag 
windows between the two monitors?" followed on by "can I treat them as 
one big workspace and have a window which goes over both monitors?" (I'm 
thinking huge remote desktop session here.

It is matters, I'm using something along the lines of

ScreenLayout "Screen1" LeftOf "Screen2"

and the mouse moves between the two screens just fine. I'm using Gnome / 

Config file available on application.
