Cool Good dual-monitor software?

Hey all.
Just got my grubby mitts on a nice little 17-incher to plug into my 9800Pro's DVI-I port, and I was wondering if there were any dual-monitor apps that work better than UltraMon.
Ultramon is okay for the most part, it's just that the dual screensaver and dual wallpaper features don't seem to work right. The wallpapers revert to the one on the primary monitor after restart, and very few screensavers work on the second screen.

The only things I really want from these apps are taskbars, and different wallpapers/screensavers on every screen.
If anyone knows of one that works right, information is greatly appreciated.

I know this sounds wierd but Nvidias software is great for dual monitors. I used a AGP and a PCI dual setup worked wonderful but my pci card was only 8 meg so after I get my new MB in and have some extra cash to buy a new Cheap 32-64 meg pci card this is all i can do. The software ATI has should be able to support and do anything you want to do with it. Check ATI's website for ideas.

Yes ATI's Hydravision should work fine for this.
