default monitor on nvidia / dual monitor setup

Hello everyone ,
I am very sorry if this has been asked before but I searched for it and I couldn't find it .

I managed to set up my dual monitor setup with a gf 6800 , one widescreen20" LCD , and one 19" CRT . took a while but everything works

the problem is that whenever I want to run a fullscreen/opengl software , for example it runs on my 19"crt , I'd like it to run on the other monitor.

is there a way to define a default monitor/screen ?

Thanks !

I don't mean to be rude but ~ that did not work for me. I am having the exact same problem as the guy who originally posted this.

I run Debian Lenny.

Does anyone know what to do about this? I am a newbie to linux. Forgive my dumbfoundedness!

Ah sorry- I just noticed this is for Suse. I'll re-post elsewhere.

It's in the details...

It might not have worked because the command must be written "sax2 -m 0=nvidia" There is a man sax2 with more options and information.
