    1. startx
    2. startk -- :1

    now, switch between them w/ ctrl-alt-f7 and f8

    and, you can run a programm in another display this way:

    xinit gaim -- :1

    if you allready have an x up and running..

    good luck

    You can also set up your display manager to automatically manage two X servers.

  4. $spacer_open
    $spacer_close

    Preferrably in your ~/.xinitrc; that is if it really is the "startx" command you're looking to change the behaviour of.
