Sort of an off the wall question... I was wondering if it is possible to configure a guest to appear to have dual monitors? I have a CentOS guest which I was configuring to support vnc. I called up the guest on one monitor of my PC and the vnc client on the other. That is really two desktops on the same guest. And it got me wondering if I could configure the guest to act as if it had dual monitors. I don't think the VMWare pseudo video card has that capability. Anyone here played with such a thing?
Thanks all! I looked and behold VMWare does allow me to select multiple monitors. I don't really need this at the moment. I was in the process of trying to sort out two monitors on my new CentOS 6 install with an ATI card. I generally test other things (new applications, printers etc.) in a VM before installing them in my "real" PC so I guess I just hallucinated that I might be able to use a VM to help debug the video issue. However, that really makes no sense because I am working with an ATI specific driver. I have that resolved now so it is time to go and break something else
