The "maximise" function is part of your window manager, not X itself.
What window manager are you using? (If you haven't chosen one
specificly, this amounts to "are you running Gnome or KDE?")

You may be able to configure your desktop as one X11 display with two
screens (technical X11 term, usually meaning a monitor but at present
meaning both monitors in your case). Then the maximise thing would work,
but you wouldn't be able to move a window from one screen to another.

Maybe the maximise facility is tunable in your desktop? Have a poke around
the configuration panels. (I don't run Gnome or KDE, so I can't help much
