Question Dual Head/Monitor Setup


I've spent the last couple days scouring the forums, only to come very close with my Xfree86 setup, but not where I want to be. I am hoping for a dual monitor setup (using a dual head GeForce5900FX) where I have one desktop on each monitor (staying away from TwinView's single streched desktopm which you'll notice I already tried out). As my XF86config stands, I am getting two desktops , but I cannot move my mouse over to the second screen. Please look over the exerpt of my XF86config and tell me what I did wrong. Thanks ahead of time for your help.

I found some more FX86Configs over at gentoo's forums, and I got it working! Now that I have my two desktops, my question is, is there any way I can alter this setup so I can drag windows between the two? It's kind of ackward since my Screen-o has all four vitual desktops and my Screen-1 has only one.
