Default 2 monitors

I have a question about multiple displays. I have an Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 and i have two monitors connected to it right now. I can't figure out how to have 2 different desktops on each monitor. Right now it is on clone mode. I can do a horizontal span, but that just stretches the desktop from one to the other. Is the 5200 just not capable of this feature?
Any help is much appreciated.

Horizontal spanning is having 2 different desktops, are you looking for 2 separate taskbars? Dont think thats possible.

Okay new problem.

I downloaded the latest drivers, and that gave me an "dualview" option, which is what i was looking for. But now when i play a movie the picture on it looks all messed up.

Read the release notes for your graphics card drivers, they are on the nvidia site.

You can also opt to search "77.72 video problem" on google or tech forums and get some other ways to fix it.
