Hi,

headed graphics card? (seems to be possible)

What do you want? Do you want to run two monitor (showing different
things) from a single video card with a single VGA port?

In the past I have run two monitors with each plugged into a video
card, where each card had only one VGA port. Each monitor was
displaying part of the desktop.

I don't want to use Xdmx for this. What i want is that i would like to
access the extended display area.

Xinerama may be solution for this because it is supporting extended
display(spanning the display) with multi head graphics card.

I was using Xinerama.

Plz suggest me a solution.

Thanks in advance,
selva.
