Default dual display question

hey guys ive got a radeon 9800pro video card and 2 monitors
1-19" widescreen lcd (dvi)

right now i have them both plugged in and running the lcd as the primary monitor and the crt as an extended desktop.they both show the same backround. is there anyway to change it so each monitor displays a different backround?

probably would have to be done through the catalyst drivers :/

i know it can be done with nVIDIA's forceware but i don't think windows has support for seperate wallpapers built in. perhaps some thrid party software could be used. if all else fails you could always live with having the same background especially given the fact almost every time you look you will have something fullscreen on your primary monitor
