    So one monitor would be the iMac monitor, and the other would be the viewsonic, right?

    Upon looking at the Apple site, it seems that the iMac has a VGA out, but the adapter is sold seperately. You can get that here.

    If you want to screen span, then you will need the screen spanning hack. I don't know exactly where to get this, but I'm sure another forum member can point you in the right direction :)

    Yes, though if that monitor is an LCD, it might have a DVI connector. In this case, you would need a VGA to DVI converter.

    Lol...the 2" adapter doesn't go directly from the iMac to the other monitor...it goes to the iMac and the other monitor plugs into the VGA port on the adapter.
