[Libdlo] Xinerama not working on Moblin

I am working on enabling the dual screen display on Moblin netbook version
via display link. After struggling a little, I was able to achieve it
Although the display on both the screens comes up perfectly, I am still
facing the problem of not being able to transfer windows from one screen to
the other. I believe Xinerama should be used for this purpose; however
setting on the xinerama option in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file does not
achieve this. All windows open in the main screen by default. I am able to
export windows on the display link screen via the command line.
I have made sure that the color depth for both the screens is 16 and the
resolution I am using is 1280x1024 for both the screens. Also X -version
gives the version as 1.6.5. Could this be a problem?
Any suggestions/thoughts on this are welcome.
Thank You & Regards,
