There's no need to delete anything, just select the one you want to use.

If you can't do that for some reason please post back with exactly which Mac you have (see link below) and a full description of the issue and any errors/behaviour you're seeing.

What I think he is asking is the he'd like to turn his two screens into one "long" screen if you will -- ie, not a mirrored desktop but an extended one.
