I'm looking into connecting 2 screen on my old desktop PC Compaq P3-733.

I use a PCI Video card for the main feed and now would like to use the onboard port too.

Here is the output of cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf :

[Mathieu@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

It seems like the video card 0 is not configured, but I did try with the Display setting, by seting up the double screen option, but when I reboot I got a few pop-up mentionning that cannot start xorg...
Any idea on how to set it up... ?
