With the Matrox, there is a way to do this, almost.  You can make your main
monitor 2048x1536 & your second screen set to a Matrox specific zoom mode at
1024x764.  This will allow you to see a broad view of your PCB on your main
monitor & you second screen will be a zoom selectable close up view which
will stay centered on your pointer location.

Note that this is a bitmap zoom and it may not be exactly what you want.
This is why I chose my primary resolution so high.

This is a feature built into the Matrox driver.  It runs seamlessly with
Protel and it has no noticeable slowdown affect on the system.
