Is is possible to enable more than 2 monitors for the 2460 on WinXP?

We had purchased the FirePro 2460 for a user running Windows 7 - everything worked well, he was happy with 3 monitors.

Later, we ran into a compatibility issue with another app and Win7 - we were forced to roll the user back down to WinXP.  When we did this, we ran into the limitation of 2 monitors under XP.

Is there a way around this limitation, either through undocumented edits, beta drivers, or 3rd Party software?  I know it's possible to have more than 2 screens using other vendor's hardware (Matrox), but AMD's offerings are better priced, better suited (half-height card for a small form factor workstation), and use industry standards (Mini Display Port instead of a propriatary dongle).

Thank you!
