Thumbs up Windows Vista Dual Monitor Help

I'm running a windows vista workstation that is displaying a looping SWF file for advertisements on a 52" lcd display.

Currently The SWF file is running in a full screened Firefox window on the 2nd monitor. This way no one can see the desktop workings while i am working on the desktop.

Where your help is needed:

I will be using VNC to connect and update my SWF files.
When i unplug the primary monitor vista automatically changes the settings to have one monitor. No more dual monitor mode.

So Besides leaving a screen plugged in to the machine at all times. (a waste of a screen) what can i do to keep the dual screen mode with my swf file playing on monitor 2 and my desktop(which will be remoted in to via vnc) on a "monitor one"?

Thanks in advance for your ideas and knowledge!
