Hmmm. I sent this earlier, but it's not showing yet, so I guess it was 
lost somewhere. If not, and I'm just not seeing it, please forgive the 
duplicate posting...

Currently using a Samsung P2350 1920x1080 monitor with the DVI port of 
an AGP 8x nVidia Geforce 6200OC video card from BFG. I'm using the 
proprietary driver from the repositories, and everything is working great.

My nephew has a spare 19-inch flatscreen monitor, make, model, and 
resolution unknown to me, that he is willing to give to me to get it out 
of his house. I am considering connecting this to the D-sub port of the 
card as the second monitor, but in portrait mode. Not sure what I'd use 
it for, but the idea sounds intriguing.

Two questions:

1. Is this possible in Mageia?

2. How difficult is it?

OK, three questions...

3. Any ideas for a useful purpose?
