i recently build a new system of 700mz cpu(cyrix III) and HB-M6VLB biostar motherboard with built-in AGP video. I added a second monitor card (pci)and was able to initialize ok for the second monitor (all video was on the second monitor). a win98 book that i have says that if the second monitor stays black (which it did, and it is connected and on) to right click on the desktop, to Properties, and then Settings, and click on the monitor 2 icon. There is not a monitor 2 icon.
I know that one only has to switch the ports to change #1 to #2, but does Win98 SE not support this? Thanks in advance.

Change the bios to boot the PCI vid first and set it up as primary. Since the HB-M6VLB uses VIA PLE133 chipset you are better off not running the Trident Blade graphics as primary. Make sure that your PCI vidcard will work on a dual setup as well. Win98FE/SE are picky about that. The Blade 3D shouldn't have a problem.
