Question about GNOME

Well I just did a fresh install of Suse 9.3 Pro, and decided to try out GNOME since it seems like a lot of people prefer it over KDE.

Now one quick question. Does GNOME support multiple user switching like KDE does?

What I mean is I want to have two users logged in at a time and be able to switch between their desktops.

I've been looking for something like this in GNOME, but haven't been able to find an option. Is there a seperate peice of software/package to instlal to enable something like this?

I don't want to spend the time to configure GNOME if it can't support user switching, this is something i NEED.

as long as GDM is running instead of KDM you can switch.and running GDM gives you the option to use nested logins.
