Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

On most platforms, the "Local" connection type is a UNIX-domain
socket. On some System V platforms, the "local" connection types
also include STREAMS pipes, named pipes, and some other mechanisms.
XFree86 listens on port 6000+n, where n is the display number.
This connection type can be disabled with the -nolisten option (see
the Xserver(1) man page for details).
So do you have two keyboards and two mice attached to the PC?
If so, I misunderstood what it was you were trying to do.
The site I referred you to, http://startx.times.lv is true multi-user. Every user (we have three) has his own X session running on his own screen, KB & mouse. All three work away merrily feeling entirely that they are alone on the machine. No networking, socket or other such complications. It's great.
