two monitors - play game and use desktop app at the same time

    I have a CRT and a flat screen plugged to the VGA and DV-I output of my
    NVidia GeForce 6800 GS.
    I can do dual monitor no problem. What I can't do is to play a game
    fullscreen on one monitor while using desktop application (acrobat
    reader, IE, words...) on the other one. As soon as the game is launched
    fullscreen, the second monitor goes off :(

    How can I solve this problem ?

    How will this work controls-wise? The mouse, keyboard and/or joystick
    function in the game through DirectInput. How do you intend to get a mouse
    pointer independently moving on the second screen?
    I believe this may be an intended action. Earlier nVidia drivers that didn't
    do this incurred heavy performance penalties in Doom 3.
