Default 2 Monitors Problem

On my laptop when I have my HDTV connected through VGA I'm able to use the
TV as an extended desktop.

I can't seem to figure out how to do this using my Geforce 6600GT. It
detects both displays using Nvidia control panel but only seems to have the
options of cloning and spanning (where the whole taskbar gets stretched
across two monitors.

I don't know if I've made myself clear but can anyone offer advice please?

Thankyou

Dan

What do you think spanning is?

What do you think being an arse is? If you bothered to read my post you
would of noticed I tried spanning but it streches the whole taskbar unlike
extended desktop.
