    Ok, so I'm running a ATI Radeon 9800pro, and I wanted to know if there is any possible way to make programs go across both screens, like power dvd or something.

    depends on the app. Most 2d apps, yes. But hardware-accelerated programs like PowerDVD do not like spanning multiple screens -- although there are some exceptions. You can, however, drag powerdvd to another screen to watch a movie.

    Ultramon is a great program.

    Completly agreed.

    Windows should integrate it into Longhorn, as it stands the XP dual monitor setup isn't the greatest.
