I have a system like that:
1 PC with 2 monitors, keyboards, mice.
EPOX EP-8VTAI mobo and XP 2700+ Thoroughbred with an TNT2 AGP videocard
and an MX-440 PCI videocard.
I run the closed source NVidia driver on 2 XFree86 servers.
Runs Multi-seat Linux Ruby:
It runs all Debian Sarge but Ruby is a kernel patch. Although I run only
2 monitors, you can run many.
I have run that setup for a couple of years now and I could not get
myself to implement it with a PC for each monitor.
I would like to try it with Matrox cards because with my setup you have
vc's just with the primary monitor, but reported is that with 2.6.9 Ruby
and matrox cards you get vc's on all monitors.
That capability reportedly broke post 2.6.9 Ruby.
