I don't have a screenshot of the menus but http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/att...tachmentid=113

that is how I am setup right now. I have it set so that when my mouse rolls from the bottom of the lcd which is higher it goes the same height on my powerbook so it doesnt jump screen. It works perfectly

Yes, you can put the monitors where you want them.

The "Displays" System Preference item has an "Arrangement" tab. Within the arrangement window you can move the "Monitor" icons pretty much anywhere. (Left, right, top, bottom. This represents where you have the monitors in relation to one another.) You can also move the title bar (within the arrangement window) from one monitor to the other which sets that monitor as the main/startup monitor.

Yes, it looks the same but better

I believe that you need an ADC to VGA adapter.

you can drag the monitors about and choose what way you want them set up and whatever the menu bar is on = the primary monitor
