    I was wondering if it was possible if I could mirror with another monitor with my my iMac G4 800 w/ 32MB of VRAM. I found an VGA to DVI adapter. Would that just let me hook up a display. I assume this because the 15 and 17" powerbooks use that to hook up to an extra monitor. Thanks in advance!!!

    Mirroring is fully supported on the iMac G4. You will need the mini-SVGA to normal SVGA adapter.

    Video spanning is not supported by Apple. Directions on how to enable video spanning are posted on the net.

    Mirroring is both displays showing the same thing.
    Spanning is when each display has their own set of windows on them.
