It won't. I work with two screens, but without xinerama. I told the gnome
session manager to fire up a second icewm on the secondary screen, and a
few apps like gaim, xmms and multi-gnome-terminal.

You could emulate a regular text-console by not starting a window manager
on the second screen, and only running an xterm there (you'll have to
experiment with the --geometry option to maximise it)

greetz and a happy 2003,
