have just purchased a radeon ve agp dual head card and noticed in the instructions that you have to have an extra graphics card for it to work, so the question is which slot do you have to install the extra pci card which will be a pci graphics card rather confused to where to put it, any grateful advice would be welcom.

Er, try reading the instructions again.

If it is the dual-head card, then it supports two monitors on its own.

You should find, I think, that it has one standard VGA port plus a digital port, and comes with a digital-to-VGA adaptor in case the other monitor isn't digital either.

Thanks for the answer Bob,I was reading the multi display for win 98 which was saying that you had to simply install seperate pci card for each addition display. and that you had to read the docs on the cd , but I didnt because I did not want to break the seal. many thks again bob. cheers for now.
