	I just started up 6 x-sessions with:
startx -- :0 vt7
startx -- :1 vt8
startx -- :2 vt9  etc.
	I dont use xdm, but the docs say edit /xdm/Xservers:
:0 local /usr/bin/X11/X :0 vt7
:1 local /usr/bin/X11/X :1 vt8 etc.
	If you want to use vt1-6 then you would have to remove
the gettys from /etc/inittab.
