Does Knoppix (or any distro) support 2 video cards, AGP and PCI for two monitor?

I can't seem to find anything on this, put in the disk and it ignored my PCI card (Knop 3.3)

I'm having problems setting this up under XP, I'm just interested in seeing if it's possible.

The cards are pretty standard, vesa would do me fine :)

Any one had experience of this in an installed distro? or under knoppix?



(P.S. I appreciate that this is linux general, but if anyone has done this in windows and can help out, I would love some help, I just "Code 10" can't start, either one or the other depending on which card I'm using)

I used SuSe 8.2 with 2 cards AGP and PCI using an extended desktop without problems and at the moment I am on Debian Sarge also running it without problems (except a small problem with the resolution on one)
As Knoppix is based on Debian I assume that it must work. You might have to mod the XF86Config
