Hey, I haven't been around for awhile, so here's a treat for you:
Multimon is now running on 2.1.9, a couple of features are missing, but
there will be new versions about once a week, with updates, available at
You will need multimon.patch, and kbd-0.91.tar.gz, the updated keyboard
package. (Although the alt-up down don't work in this version, they will
in a couple days, so check back for a NEW file there when I fix that.)
You might want to get multimon.tar.gz for docs and stuff.

In case you don't know what multimon is, it's a mono/vga/ega/cga patch that
allows you to use two hardware compatible monitors at the same time. It
supports any number of vt's on each monitor, and a whole host of other neat
features. To get to vt's on the second monitor, just alt-leftshift-fkey.

Thanks goes out to Pavel Machek for updating the majority of the source and
working out a couple bugs.

The patch is very stable - I have an uptime of 43 days with no problems
