Trying to get Dual Monitors to Work


I am having a hard time trying to get my dual Monitors to work in linux mandriva 2007, I have an Nvidia card that is covered under the driver I just installed, For some reason I can get it to where the same thing is shown on both screens, but what I really want to do is extend my desktop on to the other screen, if anyone has any Ideas that would be great.

Did any new configuration program appear when you installed the driver? When I installed the proprietary ATI driver, a utility appeared that made it super-easy on my fedora box.
