Yes, the small yellow tooltips you describe are what I am
getting on the right monitor.

As for my X config, I had to edit the file manually. Sax2
never ever saw the second monitor, or the ability of the
card to support 2 monitors. Every time I would select
the Dual Head setup, it would whine about not having
a second monitor to support dual head. That was a while
ago I did this so I dont remember the exact details. I
just remember that I had to edit manually.

I did a bit of googlin, and at the time I was Suse 9.2.
I found an article in google stating there was no dual
head support in Linux for the G200. That is when I
started hacking at the X config file and got it to work.
So, obviously that article was incorrect.

If Sax2 would do the job, I would have used it. I just
could not get it to recognize the dual head ability.

I will visit the reference mentioned earlier, thanks.
