I've got that going too now, thanks; once using TwinView, and again using
two X screens (in the latter case, KDE displays a separate toolbar on the
bottom of each one, which is cool).
Actually what I really wanted was to bind a second keyboard and mouse (USB)
to the second screen, so I'd have two completely independent X sessions,
with separate xdm logins. But I don't think I'll be able to get that to work
without having a separate card and a separate X server process; X doesn't
seem to allow multiple 'ServerLayout' sections to be active concurrently.
But my machine does have one spare AGP slot as well as one PCI slot, so I
might go down that route.
