I want to get a second monitor with ordinary 15" XGA, 1024 X 768
screen. I want this for 4:3 uses.
I want to play some older games on this, including DOS games.
I have found on the ATI pdf file that any attached monitor is
the secondary monitor. It looks as if this is fixed.
My question is if I run a game that uses the 'whole' screen,
can I get it to run in the second 1024 X 768 monitor.
It probably won't be in a window I can drag across.
I was assuming I would start a program in the second monitor
and it would run there.

This is from the X1600 pdf file:
"Note: When you use multiple monitors with your card, one monitor
will always be Primary. Any additional monitors will be designated
Not necessarily referring to a laptop and not really clear.
Would clone mode solve everything? I can just ignore the monitor
I don't want then.
