Xorg (XFree86) multiple sessions/monitors


Is there a way to set it up so I can run 2 sessions at the same time on two differnt monitors with two differnt sets of input devices (keyboard/mouse) I have looked in the Xorg.conf file and it looks like it might be possible. And I know how to run multiple sessions on one screen with ctrl+alt+F7 then F8 on my distro. Has anyone ever done this before? or know if it is possible?



Right now I have dual monitors with an Nvidia FX card using twinview. I have another PCI graphics card, monitor, keyboard, and mouse and want to put them to use for some one else. I have a pentium 4c 2.8ghz and most of the time its sitting there doing nothing unless im playing a game, so just looking for a way to use some of that power.
