Can I use an ISA and an AGP graphics card in a multihead enviroment.

Has anyone ever tried this?
Is it even possible?

no reason not to, as long as you can get the ISA card working by itself. just get two working configs and combine the two, with the serverlayout section combining the two screens as normal. the Xinerama howto contains plenty of example layouts to show what it's all about...

quite suprised you managed to find a mobo with agp and isa together!

I suppose yes, but ISA graphics cards can only run at certain resolutions and colourdepths (low) - as the ISA bus gets saturated with data very quickly.
