Multiple graphic adapters under NT4

How can I run multiple graphics adapters under NT4? I know it works for W98 and W2K, but has anyone tried it with NT4?

We have three computers running dual Matrox PCI graphics adaptors under Windows NT 4.0 Workstation on Compaq workstations. The graphic card manufacturer must provide drivers in order for this to work. They've been in production 24x7x365 for two years now with minimal problems.

The newer Matrox cards support up to four four PCI graphics adaptors, each controlling up to 4 monitors. Check out this URL for details: http://www.matrox.com/mga/products/g200_mm/mm_support.htm. Although I have not checked the marker recently, there were other vendors providing similar solutions.

Yes, NT can run multiple monitors. To save you the headache I had when attempting this, heed this advice. Even if the hardware manufacturer says the drivers are available for multiple monitor support, pay the extra dough and BUY A MULTIPLE PORT SINGLE CARD. They are available up to 4 ports i beleive, if not more. If it is all in one card, it installs so much easier. Trust me on this one. While they say it doesn't matter, i also recommend using the same model monitors for your setup. NT4 doesn'thave the ease of control that 98/2k has. using a multiple device card will save you a lot of headache.
