Martox G450 Dual head on PCLinuxOS?

I've been tinkering with a few Live Distro's over the last few months and like the look of PCLinuxOS. The only thing I want to make sure of before installing is that I can get my Matrox G450 dual head card work properly. I get a dual screen at the moment (Live CD) but, while the cursor moves across the screens, open apps just scroll across their own screen. The background image is confined to the left screen and the right screen is dark blue. I checked the similar threads and a program called powerdesk was suggested. Being new to Linux, I don't know if this will be suitable for this distro or not.
Any suggestion would be gratefully received. Regards, Al.
