The board is slightly custom, so when I looked at it I orignally
thought it had one, but I looked at the manual for the board it is
based on and I see this

* Integrated Intel 855GME graphic engine with two LVDS channels

So it does indeed look like there are two outputs. I just don't have
physical access to the second one.
