Default Windows Logon with Dual Monitors

I have googled high and low to no avail.
Is there any way to have the windows logon or any other image display on the second screen of a dual monitor setup?
From what I have read it was available with XP but not in Vista or W7.

It's my understanding that this isn't possbile because windows doesn't "activate" the 2nd monitor until it starts (after login).

The monitor lights as if it has a signal though, and I'm pretty sure the cursor will display on it. I'll check when I get home, but I don't see why it's impossible. I know there are some mods out that will load your desktop before you login, but keep it locked, to boot faster. I'm sure there's a way to do what he would like, I just don't know if it's available yet. If it is, I would be interested in it as well.
