Windows 7: Help needed with toolbar/taskbar

Help needed with toolbar/taskbar

I've just moved up from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Ultimate. Some probs but reasonably manageable so far.
One thing bugs me. With XP, I've liked to have a taskbar autohiding at the bottom of my screen, and a toolbar autohiding at the right-hand side in which I keep shortcuts to all my favourite applications and some folders/files.
When I right-click to open a new toolbar, it gets added as an adjunct to the existing taskbar at bottom of screen. I can't physically separate it.
Is this a Windows 7 thing? Or am I missing something really obvious? I've clicked the 'don't merge' and that doesn't seem to do anything to resolve this.
Thanks Anthony

To autohide your taskbar, rightclick on the taskbar...properties ... autohide.. then left click on the taskbar and drag it to the right hand side... Hope this helps...
