OK thanks. I've managed to get 2 Xscreens up and running, sort of. I used Nvidia-settings to generate an xorg.conf and now I get both displays up and running but.... half the applications in my system tray don't start and I can't get the mouse to move to the second display (which is the TV).
I'm running KDE and compiz fusion. And thinking of it, the apps that don't start in the system tray are all KDE apps (Kopete, KMix, and KMail). Is there some KDE configuration I need to do as well?
