    multiple monitors?


    Ello, I currently have two monitors, they are hooked into my Nvidia 6600GT video card. I am currently running mandriva 2006. The problem is, only one monitor is working.

    In windows, they work fine, I love having two monitors. But unfortunately, in linux this doesn't work. One of them is on, the other just sits there with a black screen. What do I need to do to get both of my monitors working so that I can put things on each of them. (ah, multitasking.)

    Thanks.

    The thing you need is called xinerema. Do some google searches to learn to setup it
