Hi,

I would like to view certain programs on screen #1 and other programs on screen #2.
Basically, I would like 2 screens connected to 1 computer.  Do I need a VGA and DVI cable?
Do I need to install and configure anything else on my computer?

Thank you for your help!

Antonia

You'lll need either a video card with two outputs, or two video cards.  As to what interface to use, that will depend on the monitors and video cards.  

For Windows XP, there should be no other software or configuration necessary.
