Hi,

Try VMware Player (Free!), create a virtual machine and set it to use a second USB keyboard and USB mouse. Set the vm to autorun full screen on the 2nd monitor, and auto reconnect keyboard and mouse on startup.

Ran across a guide somewhere, so Google is your friend if you want more details!

That's great, and so simple, it's embarrassing this didn't occur to me, and with a remote setup, multiple users could be anywhere, all using the same PC. Need a lot of RAM if you get too crazy with user numbers, but it's always good to have as much RAM as you can afford.
