I am sure, that you could set multiple
"Screen" lines in Xorg.conf. They have
to be named 0, 1, 2... If doesn't work,
two or more x servers in the same time
could do the job for you. (I would pro-
bably start them with something like:
xinit <options> :1&
xinit <options> :2& )
Anyway, try to lend nasa center. You
will use hundred screens at once.
