can you start 2 instances of X using different resource?
I believe you will need to have two seperate instances of X to have a seperate mouse/keyboard. Each X Server can then have a single mouse assigned to it (not /dev/input/mice but what actually X uses for each of the mice). I'm not even sure if nvidia drivers support running two X servers on the same card. You may need a second card to do this.
