    You can configure dual monitors, provided your card(s) support it, through the display properties.

    Some cards have two outputs so it's easy... if not, pop in a second card and connect the monitor. Be sure BIOS is set to recognize the right one as primary (likely AGP would be the one you want).

    Go to display properties->settings and you should see two boxes labeled 1 and two, representing the monitors. Drag them around to physically match your layout, then watch as your mouse moves from one display to another.
    I'm not a complete idiot... some parts are missing.
