[SDL] Using secondary screen

I need some way of finding out whether a secondary screen is available, and 
if so open a fullscreen window on this screen. Is there some way I can get 
SDL to do this? or do I have to go lowlevel for getting this functionality.

The reason I want to use SDL is that the application is supposed to run on 
windows and Mac OS X.

For those curious I can tell that I am working on a presentation tool for 
live presentations, such as live video streaming onto a slide with text and 
images. At the same time it should be possible to edit and add slides not 
currently shown while the presentation is running (on the secondary screen). 
Sound challenging doesn't it :).

Thanks for the help in advance.
