Post 3+ Months Ago

I bought a mac mini a few months ago and I've been stuck with a *plum* 16 inch. I needed a bigger display because I was doing some photoshop-like work but I didn't want to dish out $150 for a monitor. I later read about multi-screening and so I decided to use my old laptop (win98) and decided to brush off the dust and use it as an extension for my other monitor. But as much as I know, multiscreening can only be done between same platforms (like winxp-winxp and macosx-macosx). Now i'm hunting for any multi-screen apps that will work from osx-win98... :(

can anyone suggest an app (don't care about the price....) :wink:
