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.

If the card has dual outputs and dual-head capability (every Ti4600 I've seen does), then you can connect two monitors. Basically you just need another monitor section, another device section (one with "Screen 0", one with "Screen 1"), and add another line to the server layout. This should all be documented in the Nvidia README.
Here is what looks to be the relevant parts of my xorg.conf that I'm running my GF4 Ti 4600 with dual monitors. I'm running two CRTs at 1024x768 each by default. The desktop is a 2048x768 desktop spread over two monitors. When I play a game at 1024x768 or lower, with previous nvidia drivers, the left monitor would turn off, with the game on the right monitor, but with the newer drivers, both monitors display the same image. You might also just try using the nvidia config generator that comes with the drivers on their webpage.
