[PD] [GEM] multi-displays in win2k

Hmmm I can't seem to set the display to a different resolution than 
the TV. perhaps the win2k driver does not support it? 

I've found the best results for a display situation is to put the 
taskbar at the top and the second monitor (tv) below the main (patch) 
screen. That way ou can move the titlebar up so that it goes into the 
upper screen, and the taskbar is out of the way. 

if your gemwin matches the resolution of the second monitor it should 
be no trouble to hide all the window decorations. (I've done it many 
times without anything but the window content visible (in w2k)

Good luck!
