Dualview with SuSE 10.2 and Compiz?


Hello
I am running SuSE 10.2 with Compiz on Gnome. Is there any way to get anything like "dual view" on my two monitors? Like, instead of just one wide desktop, have two separate ones for each monitor that can have windows maximised on them separately? My monitors are at right-angles to eachother, so a single desktop is useless.

I have an nVidia 6800GT AGP with the drivers from nVidia website

Just to clarify, the dual screen setup in Gnome seems to work, but it doesn't recognise monitor boundaries. So, firefox when maximised gets put accross both screens. This makes it difficult to use, because there's a 40cm gap in between to two halves of the page!

Something else, my nVidia control panel shows hardly any options. It's only got the first page for configuring the program, but nothing else. I could normally change monitor settings in there.
