ATI and Dual Monitor's?


Hey Guys,

I'm having trouble getting dual monitor's to work with my Radeon X1900XT. I'm running Ubuntu and I have the restricted drivers downloaded and working. I can see picture from both monitors but it like clones the image i would like to have my desktop stretch accross both monitors. Is this possible and any tips or starters on how to get there?

Thanks in advance!
