Default Second Monitor with 2010 iMac

I posted before, but no one replied. But I have to get this running. I have the new iMac, with the mini display port, and a second screen with a VGA cable. How can I get this to work. I have a mini display to DVI adapter, a DVI to VGA adapter, and it still doesn't work. Thanks.

maybe, but you are using two adapters to get the job done. From experiance I know that things don't always work right like that.

If you want to save a ten bucks you can order it from here too:
