SUMMARY 2: 2 Headed CDE with strange twist...

Jason, as I stated before, the answer to your problem is to add the
options "left" and "right" to the line in the Xservers file....

:0 Local local_uid@console root /usr/openwin/bin/X -dev /dev/fb0 right
-dev /dev/fb1 left

This will accomplish your two headed CDE that acts as one monitor and one
desktop. No commercial software is needed, as we done this many times.

Thanks to Chis Hobbs for the confirmation on this.
