If you mean to run a program in one display and to show it in another, yes it is posible, you should change you DISPLAY environment variable to :0.1

If what you mean is to redirect a text output from one window (or text screen) to another, yes it can be done, the problem is that you need to know the name of the device asociated to the target "display" so you can do something like:
command > /dev/<the other text screen>

PLease explain exactly what do you want to doso you receive a better answer.

I want all output from all programs and deamons running, wich would normally be displayed on my primary display adapter,
be displayed on my secondary adapter.

This is because I only have a monochrome monitor which isn't conectable to a normal vga adapter.
And I have a monochrome display adapter, but I can only use it as a secondary adapter, because my vga adapter (cirrus logic) is built into the mainboard.
When I rejumper the mainboard to use another display adapter the box won't boot, because it can't find a display adapter.
