Setting up a new workstation

Hi all,

I'm about to build a new workstation and was thinking about running Solaris 10 on it.

First the hardware:
AMD opteron 2.2Ghz dual Core
Nvidia Quadro FX1400
2x Eizo S1911 Monitors

Will Solaris handle the dualscreens or will i have to use only one? Also, I'm use to run Vmware on my current workstation and does it exist something similar in Solaris?

you could use XINERAMA for dual screens (or more)

solaris comes with an nvidia driver and an nvidia settings tool. it's very easy to configure the second screen after the installation!

Ok, thanks. I guess it's time to install.

Some Basics

Could you please explain me all this - I am new to Solaris world:

AMD opteron 2.2Ghz dual Core
Nvidia Quadro FX1400
2x Eizo S1911 Monitors

Also, what do we mean by dual screen?

Thank you!

All that is posted is the spec of the Pc he will be building or has built that Solaris 10 will run on.
