Question Having a problem with Xfce and dual monitors

What I would like to have is a seperate session on each monitor, meaning that theres a seperate taskbar, panel, backgrounds, etc. for each monitor. The problem is that I am not really sure how to go about configuring it. I was doing some messing around and it seems that all the other WM/WE's that come with Slackware do this by default, however Xfce does not. What I'm getting when I start X is the NVidia logo on both screens, and then my Xfce desktop on one, and a blank grey screen on the other. I am able to drag my mouse across to the other monitor, and when I do the pointer changes to an X. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might can fix this? I tried searching Google but with no luck. Thanks for the help.
