Monitor switch-aroo
Got a system here that is a dual-boot between Linux (Slackware 9.x) and Win2K.

The 19 inch monitor is attached to the 15-pin VGA output This is my primary monitor for this machine.

The 21 inch monitor is attached to the DVI ouput using the
VGA -> DVI adapter. And before asking why the 21 inch isn't the primary on this machine... Its for my SUN workstation. (The monitor has a build in KVM switch)

So the scenario is like this:

Linux -> At startup, both montiors display boot sequence and display every function while in CLI mode. When I feel the need to use X, and I load it. The 19 inch monitor turns off and X defaults to the 21 inch monitor.

Windows -> At startup, both monitors display the boot sequence till Win2K kicks in. When Win2K kicks in, it defaults to the 19 inch monitor and the 21 inch montior turns off. I don't like to have both displays on all the time.

Is there a way to tell X to use the 19 inch monitor (VGA output), rather then my 21 inch monitor (DVI output)?? I find it rather strange that X or the drivers would use the DVI port first, before the VGA port. Unlike Windows which does the complete reverse.

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "null,CRT"

if CRT doesn't work, try DVI or something else: read the nvidia README.
