Question Dual monitor on Gnome & GeForce FX 5200


Hi, I was talking with my friend about dual monitors and I was wondering would it be possible to have one on linux. I have GeForce FX 5200 and I'm using Gnome @ Debian 3.1 r0a (2.6.8-2-386). Should I install new modules, or just configure xserver-xfree86 ?

That's that's no problem at all. you can either use the built in TwinView functionality in the driver from nvidia.com or use Xinerama, which is a nicer logical configuration but (afaik) at the slight expense of speed. The Xinerama howto at tldp.org should help you get the job done.
