Xephyr on KDE 4


I was wondering if anyone has any information on how to configure Xephyr so that I can run another instance of KDE on my KDE?

I have been looking on the web and what I keep finding it once it is installed, it should work or a configuration to kdmrc is needed, but I still keep getting just a black screen (so Xephyr is coming up) and Konsole shows that it is losing connection to the X server. So.. Im kinda lost right now

a FULL second running KDE at the same time on the same desktop box ?
( and this is not a server connected to thin clients )

And not just a second file manager ?
"dolphin" or "konqueror"

Well, yea I think that is what I meant?

I saw on a Debian install I was playing with, when I was deciding if I should switch to Debian over Kubuntu or not, an option in the GNOME desktop that said "Login with another window". When I tried it, it brought up GDM and I could login as root and it appeared to be a fully functional, additional desktop. I would assume you can do that in KDE too, right? I am seeing tutorials about it but they jsut dont seem to be working right.
