Can I do this with my PowerBook?

Can I attach an external monitor and have it display exactly what the primary LCD does? Or when you connect an external monitor, does the main LCD shut off?

You can do that.

You can have it display the same stuff
OR You can have it do extended displays

You can access those options under System Preferences -> Displays

As mentioned, you can mirror the displays, or have an extended desktop. You can also move the menu bar to your secondary display (or not), just click on the white bar in the display arrangement and drag.
