Dual Monitor Issues

Ok, here is my setup:

Windows XP Professional
Dual Dell montiors
ATI FireGl V1300 Adapter
both monitors at 1600,1200 32bit color quality, 60hz

Right now, my monitor on the left (Monitor 1) is set up as the primary monitor. My windows tool bar and desk top wallpaper only stretches across Monitor 1. However, I can move items onto Monitor 2, as if it were an extension of Monitor 1.

What I would like to do is to be able to have both Monitors behave as if it were one very wide monitor. In otherwords, I want my tool bar to stretch all the way across both monitors (so that the "Star" button is on Monitor 1 and the clock/taskbar/etc. is on far right of Monitor 2, and so the desktop wallpaper stretches across both screens.

check out a product called ultramon ...i tested it out (they let you do a 30 day demo i think) and i seem to recal it doing such a thing...or at least being able to do it...it's a pretty nifty prog even if it doesn't do such athing...
