Is it possible to setup a computer with two monitors, two mice, and two keyboards such that one user can log into her account and another user can log into her account simultaneously. Note: this is different from logging in remotely from a separate computer. I'm wondering if this can be done with a single computer and have the cables for the monitors, mice, and keyboards splicing, and the monitors display two independent profiles.

Cool Mark but then how does one go about connecting the periplerals (keyboards mice monitor)?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Step 1: Expand the PC

By adding extra standard video cards and USB cards (optional) we expand the number of stations that can connect to one PC. You can order hardware from us ready to go, or you may be able to convert some of your existing PCs by ordering components or a starter kit.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
