    Are both graphics cards exactly the same?

    If they are then I would suggest that you read the user manual on how to set up two monitors.

    If they are not both the same then I don`t think you can because the two graphics cards will conflict with each other.

    The problem might stem from the S3 card. In order to allow dual screen operations with two VGA cards,both cards need to support a shutdown function which is unavailable on the S3 card (too old). Get a more decent card like a Matrox Millenium/Mystique PCI & it'll work fine.
