Totally possible. Best way to do it is connect both monitors while the computer is powered down. Simply plug one into the DVI and the other into the VGA. When the computer boots into windows, both should be detected and displaying likely one as main desktop and the other as an extented desktop.

You can change the settings in display properties in control (ex which monitor you want as your main desktop and which side they are compared to each other).

He mentioned they are both VGA. In that case, denirockdude_99 would need a DVI-VGA adapter. You can pick one up at most local retail electronics stores, shouldn't cost you more than $25, probably less if you can find an open box.
