Default Multiple X sessions on a single dual head board?

We want to run two independent, yet simultaneous X Sessions using a single GeForce4 Ti4200 board. See XFree local multi-user HOWTO at:
Question is if it can be done and if so, how?
We have to use two separate XF86Config-4 files in order to bind the input devices to the correct monitor. How would we define the monitors? Can the monitor port be specifically forced to be the first or second port without using the dual "ConnectedMonitor" "crt, crt" notation, since we're not using TwinView? Or, should we use TwinView and define one session using "null, crt" and the other "crt, null"? Would the second instance clobber the first, or will the use of "null" ignore the relevant port?
