You need a dual-head capable graphics card. If you've already got it, plug in both monitors. There are lots of tutorials and examples on how to set up Xinerama out on Google. If you have an nVidia card, you can also use their Twinview software, which also has tutorials.

Since you don't say anything about your graphics card, other hardware, or what version/distro of Linux you have, I doubt anyone can give you more specific help.

Great...now go look at the Xinerama howtos on the internet (lots can be found through Google), and set it up.

Plug your monitors in

Go non-graphic mode init 3 (you didn't state your distro so this may or may not work)

Run X -configure

Follow the on screen instructions to test.

In actuality is it dvi rather than usb?
