Should be easy - open the display properties control panel and amongst the tabs should be an option to extend the desktop onto another monitor.  You might have to go into the Advanced properties and the custom tabs on your video card.

Your graphics card - is it an ATI or Nvidia card (who makes the notebook?).  (Sorry - I don't have my 2K systems running right now and only have my XP system up - otherwise, I'd walk you through it exactly)
