It used to be possible to start two X servers.  They'll be completely
independent, of course.

startx -- :1

should start a second X server on ":1".  Not that I've tried this the
last few years...  (Anything before "--" is the first program to start
on the new x server, anything after "--" are options passed to the x
server itself)
