I don't know about the Intel driver. The NVidia driver I am using has the
Xinerama feature that do what you want. But, you must disable the Xinerama
feature from XOrg then enable it on NVidia driver.

I believe that your Intel video driver is not capable of Xinerama. So, you
will have to enable it on XOrg server:

Section "ServerFlags"

    Option "Xinerama" "on"


If it still not work , try creating a config file with 2 "Screens" and
adding them to your ServerLayout section like this:

Section "ServerLayout"

    Identifier "Main"
    ... (keyboard and mouse settings)
    Screen 0 "Screen0"
    Screen  1 "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"


Have fun ;)
