    Indeed there is - I did that when I had a Radeon 7500. However, which driver are you using?

    Check through the settings under your card and screen in XF86Config. There's an option under there that describes what the second monitor is supposed to do (clone, left of, right of, top of, etc) with respect to the first monitor.
