Default dual monitor help

I can't seem to figure out a way to have 2 different desktop images on each monitor.
Ati 4850, a lg 20" 1280x768 and a lg 22" 1680x1050.

Open CCC, go to Display Manager, then Display Properties. Now rightclick the second monitor and choose "Extend Main onto Monitor" You should then have two seperate things on each display.

The only way I've been able to have to different wallpapers is to use a program like Ultramon. Great little app but it's not free. I'm sure there must be a free alternative.

Display fusion can do it: two or more different monitors with scaling options for the background of each one. Link:
