is there any way to have multiple x severs running in different shells?


Is there any way to have x server on multiple shells at a time?
(eg. Sally is logged in on shell 6 with her own desktop cube while Rob is logged in on shell 7 with his own desktop cube, etc)

never mind, I figured it out. I used "startx -- :1 vt9" to xserver in the 9th shell
