changing the default monitor before x starts

Hi guys, I was running f16 on my laptop with the nvidia akmod. But suddenly my laptop screen got cracked and its not working. So i connected an lcd monitor i found to the laptop. It works fine for my windows installation because after bootup it shows both the screens and i can turn off the laptop screen after logging in.
But in fedora after the boot up the screen defaults to the laptop monitor and i cant see anything (plugged in screen is blank) im guessing its showing the login screen.
so is there anyway i can force the x to use the plugged in monitor instead of the built in one? this will have to be done before x is started because after the x is started i cant see anything..
please help.. thanks
