    Hi,
    The iMac has a mini-DVI output port. You need to get a mini-DVI to DVI or mini-DVI to VGA adapter from your Apple retail dealer.
    Once you have the adapter, just use it to connect your iMac to the external monitor.

    Then look in the "Displays" System Preferences. You should see settings for two monitors and the option to place your menu bar on the preferred monitor. Good luck :)
