Dual monitors and color syncing

Hello, all

Thanks to Kent West for his page on how to set up a two headed box. 

It worked great!  Now my problem (well, one of them) is that my two
monitors have differing values for colors.  One monitor has a decidedly
redder hue than the other which, by comparison, is quite greenish.  The
controls on both monitors only deal with screen geometry, not color.  Is
this an issue of monitor age?  One is several years older than the

That's my main issue, feel free to ignore everything below the line

I have been hard put to find any backdrop images for a two headed setup,
too, but have three from a friend in England which are nice.  DO any of
you know of more?
Lastly, one of my vid cards is an old ATI AllInWonder Pro.  I believe it
to be 3D accelerated but haven't found any way to enable that in Linux.
I know that it has a TV card addition, too, but haven't been able to get
it working.  Any clues?

Then there's the xscreensaver issue of it's seeing the two monitors as
two monitors instead of one...
