multiple screens/non-xinerama

Hm.. that does not seem to do it. Here is my .xinitrc file (I am
starting from console with startx) 

export DISPLAY=:0.0
export DISPLAY=:0.1
xftaskbar4 &
xfdesktop &
exec xfce4-panel

All of them are in my path, well obviously because I can run xfce on one
head and not the other.

So when I do this, it only shows up on the second screen, this is the
XFree86 config,

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Simple Layout"
    Screen "Screen0"
    Screen "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
    InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Any other ideas?
