Hello,

There are users in a branch office that want to use 2 monitors and connect to a terminal server and do their work. They want to be able to move windows and applications between their 2 monitors in a terminal server session. I am aware of spanning and they do not want this.
Is it possible to do the above using  generic video cards?

We use a program called splitview
www.splitview.com
This enables you to use the span option for rdp, but gives you buttons on the windows of your applications to set the size of your apps the same size as your monitors. The only issue is that you need to have both monitors using the same resolution

If you hit the Restore Down button (the collapse window one) and move the RDP window to one monitor or another and then hit the button again, the Maximize Window button, it should become full screen on that screen.  You can move back and forth this way and even stack multiple sessions on one or both sides.  That is with the display set to full screen.  
With a fixed size you can set the windows to be one step less than your dual screens are at and can drag them around at will.  

FYI, keep your SA up with Microsoft, you will be able to have Citrix-like features baked right into Server 2008 Standard!  Seamless Windowed applications through an SSL proxy!

RDP update will be available in Win XP SP3 and Vista SP1; it will be an active x control that you download and use to modify the existing RDP client.

If I understand you correctly you're looking to to move the application window from one monitor to another during a remote desktop connection.  This is something I do with some regularity using a 3rd party utility called "UltraMon" http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

With it installed I can cause any window, be it a remote desktop connection window or something else to jump from one monitor to another simply by pressing a keystroke which is a lot faster and easier than dragging it over with a mouse.

With two video cards installed on your PC this should work.  In the case of my laptop it wasn't necessary as it provided the extra video ports but my desktop was a different story.  After installing two video cards in it it worked.
