Hey,

This is possible right? or only under 98/me?

Can I pick up any card or do I need something special that will work with my
Riva TNT GeForce 2?

Insight appreciated

all you need is 2 video cards. hook one monitor up to one video card, and the other monitor up to the other. you can do it in win98 as far as i remember.

I think only certain video cards work with this feature. You might want to do some searches over at microsoft's site.

I found this (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q182/7/08.ASP) but I'm not sure how complete or up to date it is.

Moving to DVD Rom and Computer forum.
