    I have an iBook g4 with a 20 inch dell monitor already hooked up through the mini VGA input. Ive seen people with more than one monitor hooked up to their computers though, and im wandering how this can be done. thanks.

    Can't, not on your machine, it can handle its own monitor plus one other. that;s it.

    PowerMac G4 and G5 owners can have up to 2 monitors on the primary video card, and theoretically 2 more on each additional PCI or PCIe video card they install

    You could buy a VGA splitter, but you would only be able to mirror the other external, I think.
