I adapted a little program to help with a dual monitor setup and two separate X screens. It allows you to configure the X screens to be apart (so that you can play games without having the mouse cross over), but still have the convenience of a crossing cursor when needed.

For a little more detail see http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Dual_Monitors#Switchscreen.
