I am considering running a dual-head configuration on my RH6.2 box. I have
an STB V4400 AGP card that will drive one monitor and an ATI Xpert 98 PCI
card that will drive the other. How does one go about setting this up? Is it
even possible to do dual-head without a GUI? I would like to possibly put
compiles and syslog on one monitor (i.e. a 15" or smaller) and everything
else on the bigger monitor. Would this be possible? I welcome suggestions.
Also, I don't know which graphics card would be faster for GUI work. The
V4400 has a TNT chip, but that's mostly good for 3D stuff--I wouldn't see
much if any benefit unless I was playing games--at least, I think so.
Can anyone relate any personal experience in this area? I've gotten SMP up
and running (dual Celerons), so now it's on to the next challenge.
