Virtual desktop Problem.......Help!!

I was using an old gnome X-windows for a long time. After i have installed Mandrake 9.2, becuase they have upgraded the gnome to verison 2.4. Some setting seems to be different......

I enjoy using the virtual desktop so much, but after i installed Mandrake 9.2...the way that switch to desktop 2, 3,4 are only right click the desktop then choose "Go to Desktop 2". or click at the task bar.

I remember last time i used gnome, if i want switch to Desktop 1 to Desktop 2 , i can move my mouse curser to the right hand side of the screen, then it will move to Desktop 2. After i installed Mandrake, they don't have this setting already....Can anyone expert tech me how can i changed back to that setting ???

Thanks heaps...

From what I remember, yes you can. Just specify them from the Control Center that comes with Gnome.
