Default tuxracer and twinview

I'm running Mandrake 9.2 on a Nvidia GF4 4200 with two 19" CRT monitors and I've got twinview working fine. Tuxracer works fine, but is centered right between my two monitors. How can I right or left justify the active "window" so tux is on just one screen? Is there a command line option that I can use? Thanks,
-AkBrian

You could try creating a metamode for the displays that disables one of them, and use Ctrl-Alt-+ to cycle between the modes. In XF86Config-4, I have the following (all on one line):

Option "Metamodes" "1600x1200,1400x1050 @1400x1200;1600x1200,1280x1024;1600x1200,NULL;1280 x1024,1280x1024;1024x768,1024x768;800x600,800x600"

The relevant part of this is the 1600x1200,NULL; mode


Alternatively, edit ~/.tuxracer/options and modify these lines:

set x_resolution 1600
set y_resolution 1200

Thanks, I really appreciate the help. Tux is flying along on one screen now.
