Try the -multiplemonitors switch to XWin.exe -- the user's guide's often a
bit out of date for newer options, check in /usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.bat
or for the current set. Those scripts are the usual
recommended way to start the server anyway, rather than running it

(FAQ maintainers -- worth mentioning in section 3.2 of the FAQ that the 
script comments are more up to date than the manual?)

BTW your email address is in pretty poor taste...
