you need a video card that has dual monitor outputs. then instead of having say 1024x768 resolution, you set it for 2048x748 and have the desktop span both screens.

make sure you get the AGP first..it's faster...if you decide to go to four monitors then you can also add the PCI card...

get the extra monitor card, nothing fancy, like 30 bucks.

once in and hooked up, right click your main screen, click properties and align you monitors as 1 and 2, decide which one you want as a main.

pretty simple.
