Default TwinMode and Virtual Desktop per Screen

Hello, i have setup my NVidia 7600 GT according this tutorial
http://www.ubuntugeek.com/dual-monit...th-nvidia.html
and /usr/bin/nvidia-settings

So, now i'm using two LCD monitors in TwinMode.
My question is:
It is possible to setup for every monitor his own Virtual Desktop?

This is the job of the window manager / desktop environment, and for most of them, I believe the answer is no. You should configure separate X screens instead of TwinView if you want separate virtual desktops. See Chapter 15 of the README for details. You can use nvidia-xconfig --separate-x-screens to generate the appropriate config file entries.

I think enlightenment does this, but I could be wrong.
