About multiple logins
It should be an option on the K-menu to start a new session. If you don't have luck there, go to another console using ctrl-alt-F2 (up to F6) and login, then typing startx.
This should work if not, there may be graphics card issues.

Well, if you want to run more than one xserver, you have to specify a different virtual display..
so, ctrl+alt+f1 etc to get a new login like before, then type this

Can you help me more by telling how can one invoke a specific windowmanager using this command. My system always logs in using KDE with the command you gave.
Secondly, is there any method by which when I log into my system I do not get into a GUI because normally I do not even require one. I think you get my question. To put more simply what I want is that when I boot my box it does not take me to a GUI but instead it should take me to a command prompt something like which you get when you press CTRL ALT F1 etc.
