If you have a laptop, you need to use USB to DVI adapters to add any additional montiors beyond the VGA or DVI connection built-in to your laptop. I walked through this here.
For a desktop system, Windows 7 may require you to make a bios change to get any integrated graphics card ports to work in conjunction with an add-on card. The other option you have is to get two matching graphics cards (2 ATI or 2 NVIDIA). Windows 7 tends to work best to simply extend your desktop in that scenario.

If you have a laptop with a dock, you can generally use both its ports, or your laptop port and your dock port to do it.
If you are lucky enough to have Ubuntu Linux, any multi-monitor set-up should be automatic - go to System->Display to determine if it should be one big desktop or many mirrors.

If you have support for ATI's "Eyefinity" or nVidia's "Surround" you can set up Three monitors to be seen as one in the OS. However ATI does require you at least one native Display port monitor and I'm not sure how nVidia Setup works. Windows Multi-Monitor config window has been pretty much the same since XP so I'm sure you'll know how to use it but when working it should look something like this...
