how to set up dual monitors


OK, I have an AGP Geforce4MX that is already set up, and I have a PCI TNT2 that I think was recognized. My question is how do I get dual monitors with the 2 video cards working. I want to to be like in Windows, where its an extended desktop, so you can drag between them. This has to be done with Xinerama, correct? Im still not sure how to do it though.

Thanks for any help.
