I use ubuntu 10.04 (gnome). All I do is enable the other monitor
(in preferences) and I can drag between desktops. They are separate and in
my case different geometries.  I use a netbook when I am on site and
often commandeer another monitor.  I can even move the smaller monitor to
match the physical location of the bigger monitor so the mouse moves
seamlessly from 1 monitor to the other.

In the old days it was harder and I needed to use twinview using Nvidia.
Nowadays is seems to just work.
