triple monitor display in windows and linux

this seems like reverse psycology in a sense.. asking a windows question on a linux forum.. but i hope somone knows if my problem can be solved.

I have a multi monitor (3 monitors to be exact) in linux.. really nice. i got the screens all working properly finally.. but i want them to be this cool in windows as well.. I have one card thats using Nvidia drivers and 2 old S3 cards.. i figgured out that by using the nvidia control pannel in windows i can get 2 screens working IF the computer displayes video to the pci first.. but i still want the third card to work in windows.. (example of why linux is so much better then windows..) any ideas? thanks alot.

Multiple monitor support is native to Windows 2000 and higher. All you have to do is:

1) Right click anywhere on the Windows desktop.
2) Select the "Settings" tab from the resulting context sensitive tab.
3) Enable/configure the monitors any way that you want.

Finally, despite our Austrian friend's rudeness, this really is the wrong forum. For Windows questions I would refer you over to "" or the Windows .Net forum at

I hope that this helps.
