Hello all, I have been trying desperately over the past couple of days to figure this one out.  I have a PC that I am attempting to use to VNC into a Leopard Mac.  I have been able to VNC in, but only to the primary monitor.  Both computers have the same size dual lcd displays.  I am attempting to use both screens on the windows machine to view both screens on the Mac.  So, in full screen mode it would be as though I was on the mac without any difference.  I have already tried a combination of things, inlcuding TightVNC, UltraVNC, and VNC Viewer.  On the OS X server side I have tried using the system server as well as RealVNC and Vine Server.  -- Thanks!

I do believe the only application that will allow you to perform such a function is ARD(Apple Remote Desktop).

Well, yes and no.  You can  do it with ARD, in addition you can also do it from leopard to leopard computer.  So, I am thinking that there must be a way to set it up to work pc to mac.

I have a feeling your dual screen PC is out of video ram, try running a 3D app, and then moving it onto the second screen as well. Or playback a Video in Windows Media 10+ and move the player over to another window.
Just a gut feeling, but if playback disappears in either 3D-Zbuffer or in Video Playback Direct X buffer, your issue is with the videoram/res of the two monitors you have.
Just a though.

Ended up using Timbuktu Pro.  Works perfectly.
