Depends on your video driver. With nVidia, you just run the settings 
program to select your monitors, configure them and then select running 
them as a double-width single monitor (twin view) or as separate 
monitors. Piece O cake. Just be sure to save the new configuration, log 
out and back in again. Trying to use the desktop monitor config apps 
won't do one thing, unless the driver is first set correctly. But, that 
is how you do it with nVidia. Ric
