I've got an G3 imac and want to use an external display. mac help asks me to change settings in the system preferences/display but there is not the required "arrangemtn" button.
I bet there's a trick around this, just like with the ibook external display. any ideas?

you can't span multiple monitors on an iMac. can't, can't can't. no workaround, i'm afraid, the video card won't support it like an iBook's will. You can use the VGA port on the back, if you have one, to mirror your display, which will probably suit the needs of a projector i would think. again only certain revisions have this port, it's under a panel on the very back... and it was actually *put* there so teachers could hook up digital projectors.
