I'm looking to move some old process machines to VMware (for new hardware).

Issue is they each drive 2 monitors.  And there are 2 machines per desk (4 monitors total).

So my question is:

What is the best way to get VMware to open a single machine on 2 monitors (as 2 monitors) when the guest is XP?

I wasn looking at RDP - but it seems to use all the monitors or just 1 - I need to open on 2 of the 4.

Is there a different console I should be using? Right now I am using VShere Client with and ESXi host (right now 4.1 - but it will be a new machine so I can go up to any version).

The machines on the desktop are planned to be Windows 7 with 4 monitrors (2 USB)
