Dual head - move application between screens


Hello,

I'm running SuSE 9.1 with KDE 3.2.1
This week i installed a second video card to get a dual head desktop.
Everything works fine but I'm wondering how I can move an application from one screen to the other.
Also: where can I find documentation about how dual head works and how to use it?

I wish I could offer an answer... instead I have a question!

How do you configure dual video cards with Linux? I'm thinking about doing the same but have no clue how to set it up.

TIA,
Dai

AFAIK, it's not possible to do this, because each screen has it's own number, and each X application is associated with one (and only one) screen number, assigned on it's start.
