Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know there are several on linuxquestions already, but none seem to answer my question. Ok, here goes, I have read in the posts that you can get both heads on this card working, I understand how to do this (I am not a Newbie, just not totally familiar with the ati driver setup). I have also read that you can get one of the heads and the tv-out to work.
Ok, my question is can you get both heads to work, my card has a VGA and a DVI (which i have a converter for VGA attached to), and also the TV-out as well. I am putting this in a jukebox and want to show the music selections on the two computer monitors, Dell p780's, and use the TV-out to show videos or soome kind of graphical display when music is playing.
If this is possible how do I accomplish this, I know that I will have to go into xorg.conf (I am using x.org 6.8, probably with either Ubuntu or Fedora Core 4) and edit it by hand, I have no problem with this as I have done this with several of my computers. My issue with fglrxconfig is it will not let you select more than two monitors.
Any help with this would be appreciated. I am going to try to either write my own jukebox app or , more likely, I have a friend who is a really good programmer and will have him write it for me.
