Spaces and Dual Monitors

I received a spiffy 23" LCD from my wife for Christmas/Anniversary (5 years she's put up with me, I'm amazed). Anyhow, I'm a big fan of spaces and was wondering if there is a way to make the secondary monitor show the adjacent space instead of extending whichever space I'm on. I run 4 spaces in the normal [1][2] then [3][4] underneath layout. So If I'm on space 1, the external would display space two. So on and so forth.

I'm not a master of Google like some of the people around here so If you want to lmgtfy I wouldn't mind. Learning others search tips is always helpful.

I have a MBP 15" 2.4GHz running 10.6.2. It has the 9400 Nvidia card.

I don't think it can do that. As far as I know, you just get a space that covers both screens and when you zoom out, instead of single rectangles, you get twin previews.
