How to autostart 2 X/gdm sesions

My apologies beforehand if I my lack of understanding X and gdm reflect upon this question.

I can manually enter in
startx -- :1
and this will give me another X session. I would like 2 gdm sessions to be auto started when I boot up. That way my girl can just hit F6 and then she can login without logging me out. right now session 0 is on council F7, I would like X session 1 to be on council F6.

Is this even possible?

The other problem is if I initiate a second X session by using
startx -- :1
and then I switch to X session 0 on F7 it kills my X session 1.

Thanks for any help,
