    so i see when i set a picture to my desktop wallpaper it sets it for both screens. theres nothing i see in the xp desktop properties window about this. maybe a seperate program? or do i just have to put the images together in photoshop and make it one very wide desktop image?

    ...then i run into the problem that there are two different resolutions. :dunno:

    Nvidia cards come with a utility to do this. Check with your card's chipset manufacture.
