have a look at the Xinerama howto at tldp.org, that will contain everythign you need.

one thing to point out... i have a dual system, triple occasionally, and i *don't* use Xinerama, but 95% of that howto is still relevant to get a basic dual head system going no problem. you can also see my old two card dual head configuration.... http://thirtythreeandathird.net/dualhead
