I have a dual boot system, Linux/win2000. In 2000, I can get 2 monitors to work quite well, but only if I boot off the AGP adapter. It does not work if I boot off the PCI adapter. I do not know why. I do not want to boot off the AGP adapter, because linux tries to apply the PCI adapter and monitor settings to the AGP adapter. (21" PCI driven monitor, 17" AGP driven monitor - you catch my drift)
I would essentially like to have both OSes running both adapters in the same way.
Does anyone know how to get two video adapters to work in Linux (for X)? Even pointers as to where I should find information on doing this. I cannot find any information anywhere.
I am sure that if I can get dual monitors working in linux, it would not matter that 2000 requires me to boot using the AGP video to get two monitors working, and I would not have to continually update my PC's CMOS when switching OSes.
