Default 9800 Pro dual monitor set-up

Just wondering: if I were to use two monitors with my 9800 pro, will they only show the same thing, or is there a way to set it up so I can have a game running on one and the desktop or winamp or something else on the other? Thanks!

I just did this setup. Plug one into the DVI-slot with the VGA adapter and another into the regular VGA slot. Then, in Display Properties, click the settings tab, then select the secondary monitor, then check extend desktop to this monitor. If you need more help, get back with me.

Thanks for the replys! I don't actually have my new computer yet but the parts should all be here by tomorrow and I hope to have it done Friday night. I'll try it out and let you know if I have any monitor problems. Thanks again for the replys!
