You can 'su <user>' to change to a different user for the current tty, or if you want to have another entire X session running as a different user, get a new console:

  Ctrl-Alt-F1 (for example)

Then, login as the new user and type,

  startx -- :1

You can then swtich between X sessions with

  Ctrl-Alt-F7 (typically the first X session)
  Ctrl-Alt-F8 (the new X session)

Note that the particular function keys will depend on the your tty configuration, but these are typical.

Thanks for the info. I never new how to start a second X-server, now I do.

BTW: what does the "--" stand for?
