Terminal services with multiple monitors

I have two servers.  One is 2008 Standard and the other 2008 R2 Standard

I have configured my client to use all monitors under display.

If I connect to the R2 server everything works great.  Connecting to the standard server will not use multi monitors.

Any thoughts??

Multiple monitors are not supported with server 2008, only server 2008 R2 or a Win 7 PC. Both of the latter also require SP1.
Server 2008 will support "spanning" which is a crude form of multiple montors. To do so start the Remote Desktop client from the run box using:
mstsc /v:ServerName /span
or  mstsc /v:IPaddress /span
