 Hi Arthur,

 Did you resolve this one?  I seem to recall some magic in
 some /etc/ config files, but nothing too spectacular was
 required.  My K | Switch User breaks, but if I do K | Lock Screen,
 I can then login as another user, which starts the second
 session just fine.

 Does this approach work for you?


Yes, using the KDE 3.5 K menu's "switch user" worked, at least on my old machine (PII-266 running unstable). The new machine has a dual core amd64 cpu.

Is there any way to set up a second kdm login on vt8 without having to run "switch user" first?

I can post existing configuration files for both machines if someone can let me know which are important for doing this. I would like to restrict the remote logins to the other machine only (assigned to the old and to the new) and *not* use encryption as this would slow the PII-266 machine too much.

Thanks for your suggestion and any further help.
