Question ti4200 twinview -how to maximize to one display only?

I've got dual display working for my PC (p4, Asus p4pe mother board, V9280 vid card) in linux using twinview etc in my XF86Config file. What do I need to configure/set so that when I maximize a window it maximizes to one screen only (does not span both displays)?

Note: I'm using Redhat 9 (kernel 2.4.20-13.9) and KDE 3.1-11 and the latest nvidia drivers (1.0-4363)

Any help would be much appreciated. I've attached my XF86Config if that helps.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Instead of using twinview why not use X instead, this allows maximising to on X screen.....

Here's a copy of my XF86Config file, just edit it so that the 2nd monitor relates to yours and not the TV output.
