If you are using xdm edit /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers so you have one line
for the first display and one line for the second display.

:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X vt7
:1 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X vt8

If you are using startx then you can do

startx -- :0

for the first display, and

startx -- :1

for the second.
