NT workstation 4.0 supports multiple monitors. You need to use two
*identical* video cards though.

We are also a reseller of PC's and I recently had one of our suppliers check
out a config I was quoting on. It was an Asus PentiumII motherboard and two
Matrox Millenium II video cards running NT WS. Worked Great. I believe you
could also use two basic Cirrus Logic or S3 cards if you want a cheap

Another config we have used under Windows95 is an Appian Jeronimo dual head
video card. This card has two video ports on one card and comes with all the
s/w to run under win95. It is a more expensive config but only requires one

This kind of config is used a lot for the Microstation cad package. If you
want a bit more info on the dual monitor issue, check out the Microstation
news group.
