If you use an nvidia card, use the proprietary drivers and install
nvidia-settings. This has all those option including where to place the
screen and so on. Made it simple in 7.10.
The alpha of hardy is not going so great though. The new xorg they are
testing refuses to use two monitors and just crashes everytime I
activate the second one.
