Yeah, Ubuntu does lack a nice dual-monitor configuration utility by
default.  One problem is the differences between ATI and NVidia
configuration settings.  They each have their own options.  Or you
could use some generic Xorg options without the driver-specific
option, and I'm not sure what SuSE does.  It's definitely something
that could improve in the default Ubuntu install.  In fact, I'm
interested in other problems you ran into so that I may bring them up
for Ubuntu dev...
