Multiple monitors

Does anybody know how to direct a particular screen to an individual monitor. The simulator (an OV-1 Mohawk cockpit) has three LCDs. A large screen with a Fresnel lens for the outside view, a smaller screen set into the instrument panel for the instruments and a separate screen on the co-pilot's side for the instructor which should display the normal cockpit view (outside and instruments). I want this setup to be the default so that it does not have to be setup every time you start FSX. Initially, I configured the nVidia graphics card to make the two pilot's side monitors into one large portrait format monitor. This works quite well, but does not permit the third monitor (on a separate graphics card) to display anything useful. No one (including nVidia) seems to know how to do this or if it can be done. I would be very appreciative if anyone can solve this problem.

This problem does not really relate to Windows XP settings- the issue is with Flight Simulator. Can I tell FSX to always display the instrument panel on monitor 2, for example?

I doubt it.
I've never see the setting in FS9 or FSX that could do that.
It may be done with some of the hardware/software that you can buy for multiple monitors but then your talking real money and tech know how.
There are hardware forums that deal with that.
