My Radeon 9800pro has 2 "Display adapter" drivers listed, in Device Manager,
as follows:

RADEON 9800 PRO
RADEON 9800 PRO - Secondary

Is that normal?

6.14.10.6436 installed.

It installs a driver for both your primary connection and the secondary in
case you want to use the other connector to a 2nd monitor (or whatever) and
run them at same time.

Its normal. The 'secondary' one is for second monitors plugges into the
other connection on the card. Allows you to stretch your desktop etc over
them both or have a Word file and an Excel file open on each and drag and
drop between them. HTH, Shaun.
