I have a Matsonic P200 Motherboard with onboard VGA. My primary display adaptor is a Matrox Mystique 220, with the onboard VGA disabled. Will I be able to enable the onboard vga to use a second monitor with Windows 98? Or will I run in to IRQ conflicts? Will the Onboard VGA become the primary adaptor? Has antone "played around with this yet?  Thanks, DR1256

To install a secondary monitor
Turn off your computer.
Insert your PCI or AGP video adapter into an available slot.
Turn on your computer.
Windows detects the new video adapter and installs the appropriate drivers. You may be asked to restart several times. Click No until you are told you must restart, and then click Yes.
Notes
To use the multiple display support feature, you need a PCI or AGP video adapter for each monitor.
Your primary monitor is the one that displays the items on your desktop when you start your computer.
The full-screen MS-DOS window always appears in the primary monitor.
