I tried to get it going on an old debian i had... will give
it a shot.. currently i am using vnc...  and am trying
this to get it to work like a macintosh automatically
does, where another user can logon to the machine
through vnc, but get their own display...

vnc works out of the box with ubuntu but im trying
to get it to do simulateanous logins on mulitiple

My buddies mac does this automatically..

i have really super upload speeds with cox  mi casa is
about a halfmile  to the cox trunk its damn nearlike being
there and i can have as many people as i want playing ouija mouse.

You could get the multi-logins by setting up the box to run xdm.  We used to use this back in the day so engineers could use Xterminals (e.g. diskless "thin" clients) to connect to our server farm to do their work.  The local X client just needs a decent graphics card.

A good X-client for Windows is Hummingbird Xceed.  Cygwin is another way, but that's a bit kludgy. Linux can connect to a remote xdm server out of the box if you know how to set it up.  Or just do an "ssh -X xserver.local.domain", then make sure your DISPLAY variable is set, and run whatever X software you want to run--it should display back to the client machine if ssh is set up properly.
