Force a Powerbook to use external monitor as startup monitor?

Hi all,



I've got a laptop (800mhz Titanium) with a non-working LCD. I've hooked up an external monitor, which works fine.



Except, I can't get to the menus, drives, etc. because they are displaying on the broken LCD (which I can't see).



Is there a way during startup to force the laptop to use the external monitor as the "main" monitor -- so I can access menus?



Anyone have any tips? Any way to get access to the system prefs so I can change the display settings? Or a way during startup to force the laptop to use "mirroring"?



PS - I will be posting this in a couple of different forums, my apologies in advance.

    Dragging the menu bar (from the systems screen preference panel) from the internal to the external screen icons should do the trick.
