Yes you can.  Most large electronics stores sell an external box that you plug both monitors into and it does the power splitting.  Note that there are two types of 2-to-1 boxes - passive and active.  The passive boxes mean you will get signal degradation since the signal is split.  The active boxes amplify the signal so you get no degradation but they cost more.

Why not just use the multiple monitor feture of win98. If the second video card is pci. Then all you have to do is install the card and drivers. Connect the second monitor to that card and then right click on the desktop and select settings. Then select the second adapter and selct extend my desktop to selected adapter. This will work for uptop 9 monitors.

There is no other way to do it. You either have to get a video splitter or add an extra PCI card.
