Question Dual Monitors From Laptop on Slackware


Ok here it goes:
I just made the jump from XP to Slackware on my laptop, and was wondering if there is a way to get dual monitors up in linux.

I have a Dell Latitude D600 w/ ati mobility 9000 32 mb video card.

I just want to be able to use both the laptop screen and the extra monitor for extra desktop space. And I was also wondering if its possible to take advantage of the S-video port and display stuff on a t.v. as well.

Thanks

Talking Thanks

You're right, definitely not as easy as winXP, but the site helps a bunch, thanks.
