I have a Dell Latitude notebook that is docked in a port replicator. On the back of the replicator there are two video connections: one digital (white connector) and one analog (blue connector). Currently, I have a wide-screen monitor plugged into the digital connector. The wide-screen monitor is my primary display, and my desktop is extended to the notebook's lcd. I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3.

I have another older flat panel monitor that has analog capability. Is it possible to either:
1) Use that monitor as my secondary instead of the notebook's lcd?
2) Use all three monitors?

If 1 or 2 is possible, please suggest how I would set it up.
