Hi.

Is anyone here running CentOS 6 with dual monitors configured as a 
single X Screen?

I'm trying such a setup on version 5 (again), using NVIDIA TwinView, and 
it works in many ways, but there are a number of problems that means 
it's not too usable - the most important one being that there appears to 
be no way to control which of the displays new applications/windows will 
appear on. I mean, I don't necessarily need to be able to configure this 
or anything, but I would at least expect programs to open on the monitor 
that displaying the menu item or icon or terminal or whatever used for 
startup, but often they end up on the other one.

So I guess my question is, would upgrading to version 6 help?
