Post Dual Monitor Config

I'm trying to configure a dual monitor display, Oh but of course, it's not working out too well. I have a standard VGA monitor and a DVI Apple flat panel and using a GeForce 4 with DVI out. After installing the card, I can't get the pc to boot to the Apple flat panel using DVI. I am looking for any ideation of problamitic discussion. Thanks for the help.

Are Apple monitors configured to work with regular x86 pc's? Don't you need a converter?

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I do have a DVI to ADC converter which is what Apple uses.

Did you go into your video card properties and set it up for duel monitor support? You have to set it to use that output.
