^^^ that ^^^ plus alot of editing of xorg.conf. Not going to be the easiest thing to do! If all your cards and moniters are the same then you could always just add an option line for xinerama and copy your confs for the card and moniters

Just a taught like this (just poped in my head.)
Would'nt it be TECHNICALLY possible to do this with one video card, some kind of (if it exist)"reverse kvm" and virtual screen?????
Ok if possible its a real long shot, but just wondered of the possibility was there.

Wink Its might be.

It may be possible - using multiple matrox triple-head-2-go type device. I'm thinking of trying this out by chaining a few of them together and setting the video cards into 3way SLI mode powering a single port at 5040x1050 resolution and then splitting that up into the 6 monitors.. We will be posting more videos soon showing performance and integration using vmware workstation 6.5 and windows apps.. Feel free to check out our thread over at the ubuntu forums on how we set this config up and how to modify the xorg.conf in ubuntu hardy, etc Link is in the more info section of the youtube vid.
