GeForce 6600GT + Suse 10 + Dual CRT (newbie)

Sorry to bother you guys here at LQ...

I just recently got a new PC and added an old monitor (Sony Trinitron Multiscan 210GS) to my existing setup (ViewSonic A75f).

I currently boot in both Windows XP and Suse 10.

I've been trying to figure out how to setup my screens so that it's my desktop is extended to another screen as it is in Windows XP... Or even setting the other screen up as another desktop in Linux... I've tried setting it up via the Setup in Suse but I keep getting errors...

I was wondering is there an easy (or any way) at all to setup both my CRT screens to work the same under Linux as they do in Windows XP in that both screen act as one large desktop...
