On the one hand you're right: that would be the most sophisticated way. But on the other hand I think it would also be a little bit of overkill. Letting two people use one PC at the same time doesn't really require running two instances of Linux. Remember: Linux/Unix is a Multi-User-System from the day of its birth!

The simple solution for your problem would be to purchase another 8400GS
Yes, I thought about that myself. The only problem is that the 8000 series is not available as AGP, is it?
