Default outputting different screens using geforce mx 420

Hi all,

I've got a problem; I'm currently running fedora fc 2 and I am sharing the screen with my tv but what I want to do is watch a dvd or so on the tv whilst using the computer at the same time. I'm stumped if I know how to do this as I've been trying for a while with no luck at all.

The basic rundown of the perfect scenario would be:
Monitor for browsing the net
TV showing a movie to keep me or the girlfriend happy and also having sound through the pc.

Does anyone know where I can look or what to do to get this sort of setup to work as I'd be very much appreciative about it.

TIA,

Thomas.

Use the seperate X screen approach. For example look on this forum as this topic has been discussed a lot of times.
