First user logs on, starts Xserver with     startx
                                            (available via Ctrl-Alt-F7)
Second user logs on, starts Xserver with    startx -- :1
                                            (available via Ctrl-Alt-F8)

I have a 486 100 with 16Mb of RAM and 2Mb graphics on which I *always* run
*three* Xservers simultaneously in this way.

(OK, if I push the total number of simultaneous applications to something 
silly, one will eventually go b&w on me, but it's all incredibly stable
and reliable.)
