Does your TNT2 have two VGA outlets on the backplate? If it doesn't, you need a seperate PCI videocard for the other monitor.

If your videocard does have two VGA outlets on the backplate, shut down, connect a second monitor to the second VGA out, boot up and add the new monitor through your display properties. Do know that most games don't support dual monitor setup, that there are some games out there optimized to use this feature. But most importantly that OpenGL games cannot use the Dual Monitor setup.
