I use a dual-monitor setup at home that may be (or not) rather unique:

The smaller 17" Viewsonic monitor is attached to a PCI ATI
Rage Pro 16 Mbyte card.

The larger 19" Sun Microsystems monitor is attached to an
AGP NVidea GeForce Plus 32 Mbyte card.

The system is dual boot; Primary is Windows 2000 Professional,
secondary is Windows 98 second edition.

Both monitors are active in both environments.

Adding the ATI card resulted in the usual "new hardware found";
and loading the driver using the hardware wizard and specifying
the location of the drivers worked fine.

Once the drivers were loaded, all that was left to do was to use
the Display Properties Settings tab to (1) mirror on-screen what
the physical relationship is between the monitors (Sun/Nvidea on
the right, ATI/Viewsonic on the left) and (2) set the desired
color density and screen area.

It's been working fine under both versions of Windows with no
problems - and the idea of going back to a single monitor gives
me the shudders ;*)
