    Use the dongle, attach screen. If it doesn't show up, go to Display Preferences and "detect displays". That should be all. I am not aware of a limitation preventing extended desktops on the iMac G5, only on the iMac G4, but I could be wrong.

    This is a tad bit old school.

    I never tested in Leopard if it removed the mirroring only limitation on the iMac G5 I had around.
