Single desktop across two monitors?


I've installed Mandrake 10CE, and it's identified my video cards fine, but is displaying an independent desktop on each monitor. I want to have a single desktop spread across the two screens - how do I go about doing this?

can't help you, but there are Xinerama HOWTO and a few others
They might have links to other places
Going to look myself tomorrow, as I have a spare monitor as well
