Default dual monitor - xp clear type only on one?

Just hooked up a second monitor and love it! The issue I'm having is that I have 1 CRT and 1 LCD. A 19" CRT and 17" LCD, both resolutions at 1280x1024 and both refresh rates at 75, so no technical problems. To clean up the text on the LCD, I used XP's clear type power toy and it looks a lot better on the LCD, but now the text on the CRT is a little fuzzy, not nearly as good as it is without cleart type turned on. Does anyone know if you can enable clear type on only one monitor, and not the other? I doubt it, since XP's just seeing this as one big monitor, but maybe someone has a suggestion. Any third party anything?

Is it a dual monitor card? If so, you would need to look around in the monitors and see if you can apply it only to that monitor. But I'm pretty sure that you have set that based on the card.
