    Providing some details of the PC would help, but basically you need a video card with dual outputs.
    Most video cards these days have dual outputs, but "on board" integrated video does not.

    More details needed...

    Yup, either a graphics card with 2 outputs, or if you have a board that will take it, 2 cards. IF you have PCI e or AGP, if you can find an old PCI card, that would work, but dont expect too much in the way of resolution :)
    As for setting up, windows does most of it for you.
