Remote Desktop Connection and Multiple Displays

Has anyone found a way to enable Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) to support
dual head (or multiple displays - have some 3 headed systems too)? I have a
dual headed system that I want to connect to from another dual headed system
and ideally I could RDC the entire extended desktop. I have many systems
with various graphics cards in labs, but for my office PC, I have a Matrox
G450 PCI card and both displays at 1600x1200. Some system do have multiple
cards (AGP and PCI mixture) but more often we're running single AGP or PCI
cards with dual head support. In a software integration/test environment,
having access to multiple displays is almost a requirement and having
dual/multiple head access remotely would be very nice.

As another question, is picking the display to remotely connect to possible?
Can I have RDC connect to the second display rather than the first?
