Stopping mouse moving to or disable mouse on other displays

My linux system has 6 individual monitors connected using two nVidia graphics cards. I would like to use the 5th and 6th monitor for display only. Is there any way to disable the mouse on the 5th and 6th monitors so the mouse cannot move to those monitor? The system is a Dell Precision 490 workstation with nVidia Quadro NVS440 Quad Head and Quadro NVS290 Dual Head graphics cards. It is running Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS V4.3.

But you haven't given us any details of your hardware or linux distro, so there's not much more to be said apart from
