Dual Head Monitor Setup and Console Mode

Just a curiousity question:

Is there any way to make it so that my dual monitors aren't merely clones of each other in console mode (also, is there anyway to make it so that I can have a vc in one monitor and X running in another [if there is is there an easy way to swap back and forth?]. I routinely use two vc's at once, and would like to be able to read both of them simultaneously.

Thanks for any info.
