Something along the lines of: (one I currently use)

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier      "Desktop"
        Screen          "Screen1" 0 0
        Screen          "Screen2" LeftOf "Screen1"
        InputDevice     "Generic Keyboard"
        InputDevice     "Configured Mouse"
        Option          "Xinerama"

Hope it helps,
