    I'm running Autocad 2000 off of my laptop which has Windows XP on it, and
    would like to know how I can configure Autocad to use my other 21" LCD
    monitor in addition to the Laptop's screen. I know Windows XP is capable of
    using two monitors, I'm just not sure what the specific steps are with
    regard to Autocad......

    If you have dual monitors working in Windows, there's nothing special to be
    done for AutoCAD. Just stretch or move the desired window(s) or toolbars to
    the other monitor.
