i can and failing all us will do this - its just that it leaves thewidescreen laptop looking very weird as everything is stretched out. worstcase scenario this is what i will do. would be ok if you could stop the distortion by having blank black strips on each side like they do with widescreen tvs showing old films...

In XP you can go into the display settings then drag the screens around. If you make them overlap then I think you end up with both screens showing the overlap region (as well as their own) and I'm pretty sure it'll let you put 1 screen "inside" the other, so you could have your projector magnifying the center of the screen. I would expect Vista to have similar options to play with.
The other thing i can think of is the magnifier utility. If they still provide that then you could maximise the magnifier window across the projector and it'd follow the mouse pointer on the laptop screen.
The thing that occurs to me though, since someone suggested just running the laptop at 800x600, is why does it matter if the laptop screen looks funny if the user isn't able to see it clearly enough to use it anyway? Just close the lid so you don't have to look at it.
