Is it possible to have dual-screen support in Xfree?
I have a Mystique 220 4mB, and Trident ProVidia 1mb (ugh..)
Using linux, 2.1.117.

If so, how??

I don't believe so.  I'll be watching for alternative answers.

X11 itself does not have any problem to support more than one screen. IBM compatible machines (hardware!) is the one I am not sure about it ...

Even Win98 which has the ability to support dual video cards requires the right type of card to work.  So if you got the right card, then you would need drivers, so I am saying that the drivers do not exist to support it under Linux. Now, I'm not saying that someone could not write these drivers, just that they do not currently exist.
