I don't quite understand how one can have a single X server running on
multiple hardware. Does your system by any chance run multiple
displays instead of a single extended desktop? I am asking because I
see multiple "ScreenX" sections in your example xorg.conf. As far as I
understood the OP wants an extended workspace.

In any case, I would be glad if you could confirm or correct my
(possibly false/incomplete) understanding. :)
