start a new session.

i am running FC4.Earlier i had mandrake10.0+KDE.

In mandrake 10.0 there is a option for invoke a new GUI session by just click "create a session" on the kde desktop.
Which brings me to the login page as i get when booting system

Now FC4 +KDE.Does not have such option in the KDE desktop.
I know i can start by startx -- :1.

But i would i like to get a second login page where any user can login again.I mean,a graphical screen should come for login.

Check if you have the package Xnest. If no, then install it. Read the man, because i forgot the syntax
