Dual monitor X WinXP SuSE 9.2

Maybe i'm expecting too much out of X, but here is my idea:

computer 1: windows xp pro
computer 2: SuSE 9.2

Both have their own monitor and keyboard currently. is there anyway i can utilize X, Cygwin, etc (basically anything) to be able to move the mouse between and drag windows between monitors? im not talking a traditional dual monitor setup here.

probably not.....?

If I understand what you are trying to explain, the answer would be No. You want to have two separate computers with separate monitors be able to move applications between them?

YES, there is. When configuring your video cards, look for "Xinerama" mode - this will give you the extended desktop you are used to.
