Dual Monitors, dual Taskbars?

    I now have two monitors set up on my computer. One is using the VGA output, and the other is plugged into a DVI to VGA convertor in the DVI port. I have a Radeon 9600 Pro video card and am running Windows XP Home.

    What I want is to extend my taskbar across onto the second monitor. Even better than that would be to have a second, independant taskbar which displays only programs open on the second screen. The first screen's taskbar would show programs open and displayed on the first monitor.

    Any ideas?

    Guess what I found?

    Exactly what I was looking for

    Actually, not exactly. I was hoping for a native Windows solution that doesn't require running another program to get the second taskbar.

    I'll clarify my question: Is there a way to get a second taskbar on a second monitor using options or features found in Windows XP? Failing that, does anyone have any favourite programs they'd like to suggest?

    Interesting link, I'll have to check it out.
    I have two rigs that I run dual monitors, Dual setup kick's butt.
    One of these days I going to have to try triple setup.

    I only run one task bar, havent really needed a second, but that may be a nice feature to have.
    I'll be following this thread to see what other options might avaible.
    If I come across anything, I'll post err.
