I would like to keep xdm. According to xdm(1), it should be possible
for xdm to manage several local X-displays.

From your experience we can at least conclude that two X-servers can
share one videocard. I was not even sure about that.

On my box, after an X-server is started, there is no return to the
text console. This is because of the Intel video card or Intel video
driver. Once I start an X-server, there is no text prompt for me.
