My specs are as following:
AMD Athlon XP 2500+
Radeon 9600 Pro 128 MBs
Voodoo 2 12MBs
WinXP Pro SP2
Catalyst 8.2

Both Voodoo2's VGA and Radeon's DVI are connected to the same monitor so the plan is to simply switch between outputs to when playing Glide games while using "dual-monitor" setup.

I've tried installing the latest koolsmoky's drivers, latest official win2k drivers ( as well as Legendgrafix 2.2.0 ones but the problem is that desktop (as well as cursor and anything that uses WinXP graphics) is getting graphically corrupted (but f.e. Firefox doesn't seem to be affected at all though). Windows leave trails, cursor has improper animation, icons disappear, buttons have weird lines - you get the idea.

I've tried running Glide games like NFS2SE and Wizardry 8 and they work fine with official drivers (PC totally freezes with legendgrafix and I had to replace Koolsmoky's drivers with official ones because NFS2SE was reporting it couldn't find glide2x.dll even though it was there) but that's not the point).
So Voodoo 2 videocard does work.

Is there any solution to this?
Perhaps it's because both primary and secondary outputs are being set up to run at 1680x1050x32 on Windows start up? But I've tried running R9600Pro solely at the same dual-desktop settings without V2 and so far no problems.
