Turns out my wife wants to use Puppy Linux on her dual monitor PC. When she starts puppy from either a cd or her hd she gets a screen with colors on it. When she boots single monitor everything is fine. I also want to point out that when she boots into xp pro dual monitor, everything looks fine.

What do I have to do to get puppy Linux to work dual monitor? I'm hoping it's not too hard and pretty straight forward.

Thanks!!!

the magic word is xrandr - this configure xorg and can add extra screens http://puppylinux.org/wikka/XRandr

zarfy is a gui frontend, never tried it myself though-
