Display Affinity Software for MacOSX?

Is there a piece of Mac OS X software which will let me divide a very wide screen up into several virtual displays so window/app affinity hacks like spaces will work?

I recently purchased two 24" HD displays, and I'm running them both from my Mac Book Pro via a Matrox Triple Head 2 Go, Digital version (Dual-link DVI)
I love having all of this real-estate - it's truly wonderful for programming.
The problem is that the Triple Head 2 Go makes both monitors present as one huge, wide display to the OS.
This means whenever any centered alerts pop up, they are right in the middle of this giant screen, and split by the bezels.
OK, so it's not the worst thing in the world, I just need to move the window to make it legible.
But, I was wondering if there's any third-party or shareware software out there that will allow me to tune the screen location affinity of apps or windows or alerts.
The real solution to this, I know, is to have a desktop machine with multiple display cards, but that's not happening at the moment.
