Installing terminal services for the first time.  Got a user that wants dual monitors.  Is there a way to set up a remote user in terminal services so the remote can use dual monitors?  How is this done?

The new remote desktop client supports it, ver 6.0, but I believe only with Vista and Longhorn.

More details on the new client:
"The Remote Desktop Connection 6.0 client can be used to connect to legacy terminal servers or to remote desktops as before, but the new features that are mentioned in this article are available only when the remote computer is running Windows Vista or Windows Server Code Name "Longhorn." "

"Remote Desktop Connection supports high-resolution displays that can be spanned across multiple monitors. However, the total resolution on all monitors must be under 4096 x 2048 pixels. The monitors must have the same resolution. Additionally, the monitors must be aligned side-by-side.
To have the desktop of the remote computer span multiple monitors, type Mstsc /span at a command prompt."
