yes.

Please, be more spesific on what you exactly are trying to do to get a more useful answer.
(Are you having eg. two monitors, two computers, two outputs in your graphcs card, connection to a TV, network-connection to an other machine. Or do you just mean to have two desktop-managers installed at the same time (eg KDE, Gnome), or different applications running using different libraries (QT,GTK))

ok.

1) In one desktop.
Try eg. running command "kicker" when you are in gnome.

2) In separate desktops.
With something like "startx -- :1" you can start a new X session running into an other virtual console
(Commonly the first one starts in Ctrl-Alt-F7, second one ..F8 or ..F10.)


Why do you want to run two desktop managers at the same time?
