RHEL4 setting up extended Desktop with nvidia and dell 2408wfp's
 
Hi out there:

Here's what I have:

RHEL4 ES (2.6.9-78)
T7400 with nVidia G80 Quaddro FX 4600 (two DVI-D on card)
Two Dell 2408WFP's monitors

How do I setup /configure the two monitors to be an extended desktop mode? Never did it before.

Thank you in advance.

Have you installed the nvidia drivers? If you do that and run nvidia-setup, it may be fairly obvious how to do it (I've only set it up on v5 and with a different nvidia card)

Solved!
I connected second monitor, went to INIT 3
reinstalled the nvidia driver then ran NVIDIA X Server Settings (as root). The monitors wre in the "X Server Display Configuration" section. I enabled the second display and voila, life is good. Thanks for the quick rsvp!
