Well, i admit this is a late reply. ;-)

I would like to thank John Meissen and Nathan Mahon about their feedback a 
month ago.

I just bought my new lovely super extra Samsung 244T (a 24" wide screen !) and 
i upgraded to AfterStep 2.2.

I made some few attempts to make xinerama works so that i can use my old CRT 
17" as well but i am facing some sync problem that has to do with the ATI 
radeon 9700. It seems that the DVI and VGA output can work under specific 
freq combinations and the 2 monitors don't agree on theses. :-)

For the moment i am back to Single mode, simply enjoying the 1900x1200 
resolution ! It is so great ! You can for instance have 2 web pages open on 
the screen.
