How do I set two screens display?

  [DELETED] 13:38 18 Jun 2006

I have another problem aswell as the previous one!
I have been able to set my PB K5285 (NVidea) to use a double screen set up to veiw on my Phillips LCD at the same time. That was easy doing it through controlpanel/display/settings/advance. At the same time with the LCD I was unable to do this with our Fujitsu Amilo D7820 using ATI Radeon 9000. When the additional monitor using the above settings was checked, it was said to be not available because it wouldn't support DDC.
It seems, after checking that Radeon 9000 will support DDC so how can I get around this?
If this is not able to be done, can I use the LCD as the default screen and not use the original fujitsu screen at all? How could this be acheived if it is possible?

Re your mail, what graphics card do you have and what Ports are on it at the back of the computer? The one that your Monitor connects to. If there is only one port in the card then you have to buy a PCI graphics card to connect another Monitor. All Operating Systems above Win98se support this way of doing things. Re you can have two graphics card working at the same time, on the same computer.

There is an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 card
The plug is a 15pin monitor one. This is as the PBell which works fine though. That has an NVidea card.
