    You have to have a DVI connector (it's a white plastic rectangle) next to your monitor plug, and if your other monitor doesn't connect to DVI, you will need a DVI-to-VGA dongle.

    does your video card have 2 monitor outputs ?

    if it does one is a regular CRT and one is a DVi output... to use it like a regular crt port... just use the adaptor that should have come with your card else you can buy one from a store for cheap...

    Nview is the nvidia software that allows you to use multiple desktops (spanning over the 2 monitors or separate) or you can use www.ultramon.com 's proggy :) its quite handy...

    windows also has its own little thinger.. though it is quite basic (win XP... dunno bout the rest since I haven't used em forever)

    check the dongle like handybuddy said and then try out the stuff I have posted...

    if you don't have 2 monitor ports on your card... you will have to use a pci card to get access to your second display...
