Sure, just run two copies of whatever it is you want on each screen.
Note that without things like Xinerama support, you won't be able to
move windows between screens, but then this can't be a requirement if
you don't want the mouse to move between them either. For instance:
exec fvwm -d :0.0
exec fvwm -d :0.1
Now, assuming you setup X just to use two monitors without enabling
things like Xinerama, such operations tend to happen automatically in my
experience, as the above example with FVWM. I couldn't say how GNOME or
KDE works in that regard.
