That would mostly depend on how friendly the graphics drivers decided to 
behave.  When I was initially developing the AccelerantDriver for the 
app_server, I was attempting to run my graphics stuff on the secondary 
graphics card.  In my case, the primary was a Geforce 2 and the secondary was 
an old pci ATI Rage 2.  The secondary graphics card refused to open properly.  
Assuming that you don't hit problems like that, it should just be a matter of 
tweaking the app_server code to initialize using the secondary card.
