Subject: Using second monitor....

I acquired an old working monochrome monitor, and just received a new
monochrome video card as well. I would like to use it for debugging. 

I modified my SET GO32=  line and added "mono topline 1rm 2rm", then tried
a sample program, which simply took two integer variables, assigned them
values, then printed out the result using printf(). When I run the program,
the machine reboots. However, if I run the program without the "mono...." in
the SET GO32= ... , it works.

What gives?

Additionally (although this doesn't apply to DJGPP), does anyone know what the
BIOS call to switch monitors (or something like that) is? Also, can the 2nd
monitor be used with the BC++3.1 debugger?

Thanx.
