can't get onto my 2nd monitor


I had some troubles setting up my second monitor in Suse 9.0.
This works now since I double installed my graphiccard. The second screen is not a copy!

I can't do anything on it though.
The mouse just stays in my first screen.

Could anyone help me with that.
What should I set up for it?

I am happy for you,but I have the same problem in an old PC in my shop.
In the second monitor I can see only the desktop of my Mandrake distro but the applications don't run in this display,only in the first one...

In the first time I try with Xinerama and both monitors works,but I can't obtain the clone of the first display...
Can you help me ?
