I have done this before but have long since forgotten.
"startx" starts my first X session on tty7

What is the command to start another X session on tty8 or tty9?

startx -indirect? somthin?
X -indirect? somethin?

I forget.. any help?

startx -- :1
will start it on tty8. startx -- :2 on tty9, etc. I think this is what you're looking for.
