Dual Monitor with ATI Radeon 9200

Hello. I am a relative newbie to Linux in a GUI world. I recently setup my XP machine with a dual boot using Mandrake 10.1 Official. I have a dual head ATI Radeon 9200 that seems to power up and run both monitors just fine. Games work and all. My issue is that under XP I was able to span the desktop onto both monitors. So far I haven't been able to get that working with Linux. I just get the same thing on both monitors. Any thoughts?
