Dualview / ATI Hydravision for Compaq evo n600c

My company just issued a Compaq Evo n600c laptop with a Mobile Radeon 7500 GPU - 32meg DDR.  I tried to install ATI Hydravision under W2K Professional to enable dual-desktop support.  While I can get all the 3D and shadow with hydravision, I can not enable the dual-monitors / dual-desktops feature.

Could you please tell me how can I enable dual-monitors in W2K?  Or do I have to upgrade to WinXP and use the native Dualview feature?

All help and suggestions are appreciated.

Windows2000 Hydravision supports only the Radeon VE and Radeon7000 AGP 64. Looks like you are SOL. T

According to the following ATI webpage, Hydravision is supported all the way from W98 to WinXP for Radeon 7500.

It seems that I was able to get all features of Hydravision working other than dualview.  May be I am SOL on running Hydravision, but how about native MS WinXP Dual View??

I noticed that the Acer Aspire 1400 laptop using the same ATI mobile Radeon 7500 chips does support dualview under WinXP.  So does the manufacture have to create special circuit? or does that ability comes with the chip and driver??

"*Multiple display support only available on the Radeon VE and Radeon7000 AGP 64MB. Multiple desktop support only on other Radeon7000 versions." ATI
As above stated that "dual view" is a no go, but there is "multiple desktop" support. As far as the comparison to the ACER: the ATI Mobility Radeon and the ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 are different chipsets with different specs, the Mobility has this feature and apparently, yours does not.T
