I don't know how to do what you are asking, but I think you can work around it. You can divide it up into two images using an image editing tool (like Gimp or Photoshop) and then set each screen to have the two different wallpapers.

Hope that helps.

Have you gone into Sys Preferences/Displays/Arrangement and unchecked the Mirror box? In that panel you can drag your menubar and with it the Dock to other display if need be. Just noticed u r on 10.6 - should be the same i guess
