Need help getting dual monitors to work

Hello, I installed SuSE 10.1 today, for a number of reasons, mainly being for sound editing, but I need the dual monitor function to work. I want to share 1 desktop across two IBM P76 monitors. I am a Linux newbie and I dont know many commands or my war around the hierarchy of files. I've searched around a bit, but nothing really helped me since I dont know much about the OS itself.

Im using a BFG 6600GT AGP with dual heads. I also installed the lastest 64bit NVIDIA drivers too, thats where I'm at now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Alright, after restarting the comp, I went back into SaX2 and found out about the DualHead option, thats fixed, now is there a way to span the bar on the bottom across both screens? BTW Im using Gnome.
