Dual Display

Hi all!!

I am currnetly NEW to the Linux scene and finding it better than the boring Win??? scene.

However I am having some problems having a dual display system in Linux.
I am currently running WinXP Prof and Linux Mandrake 9 on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 laptop and with WinXP I don't have any problems in having 2 displays on the system, however I am getting stuck when it comes to Mandrake.

Is it possible for me to accomplish this in Linux and if so How can I do it.
