    I know it can be done, so don't bother saying otherwise. I need to know what program does it. I saw the name posted somewhere in this forum, but searching for it didn't work.

    Teleport

    The closest thing to what you want is called Teleport. Not really a second monitor, but lets the mouse move from one screen to another. Check for it on Version Tracker.

    Teleport is really handy. It doesn't let you do everything another monitor would do, but you can do a lot with mounting shared volumes so you can open documents in one whatever monitor and the clipboard syncing makes it almost transparent. The main thing I use it for is reading documentation-pretty much the same as I used my PowerBook at home before teleport but I don't have to move my hands to get a new page.

    And the price can't be beaten.

    Is "Teleport" just a program you install to get the iBook to work basically the same as a dual monitor?
