You can plug in two cards that support it. Matrox Millenium,
Mystique support it, as do most S3 cards I believe. I think even
a lowly Cirrus Logic supports it.

The second and further cards do not act as VGA cards, but rather
remap all I/O and video mem.

It used to be so that 2 VGA cards wouldn't work in a system
together, but most common video cards work in a system now
together I believe, just not as VGA's.

I'm no authority, but I know it can be done.
