My workstation has two heads, with independent Xservers, one for
me and one for my wife. The number of heads is limited by the
number of PCI/AGP video cards you can use. The linuxconsole
project works on a kernel patch that makes this more mainstream.
three(?) commercial companies are selling such solutions. 

But you are right that both my wife and I think that without
network the box is utterly booring.
