I think this is a feature new to Windows 98. I searched the
Microsoft Web site and found two articles you might find useful.

How to Enable Multiple Display Support Using Windows 98:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q179/6/02.asp

Hardware Requirements for Multiple Display Support in Windows 98:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q182/7/08.asp

I was unable to find anything on Win95 that does this. Of
course, that doesn't mean it's impossible, just that I couldn't
find it when I looked.

I hope this information helps,
