How to send different content to each head on a Netbook

I have an EeePC 1000HE Netbook.

I'd like to use it at a Fair with an external LCD monitor connected the the
VGA port (A.K.A. LVDS) as follows:

Use the internal LCD screen for my own stuff, like surfing the Web and
reading PDFs and such, and at the same time run an OO Impress Slide Show on
the external LCD monitor for everyone to see.

It is very important that whatever I do on the internal LCD won't show up on
the external LCD!

I guess there's a CLI command to tell a certain application to open and
display a  file on  certain $DISPLAY?
