[clug] Looking for a netbook

well speaking of that 'sluggish when too many apps open' thing - I'm 
interested in VNC'ing (or NX'ing) back to my main PC and using the 
netbook as a client around the house - or even when travelling - as much 
as possible - thereby offloading much processing to my home server.

With this in mind - is it possible to open multiple sessions - say for 
example I have KDE running at home and I want to VNC in using IceWM or 
Gnome under a different session, or just text or whatever - is this 
possible? Or another user VNC in while an existing session is already 
running on that PC, both using KDE or Gnome?

Or is VNC or remote desktop limited to the logged in session on the 
remote server?
