Question 2 monitors / 2 keyboards

so i have dual 24" monitors and sometimes my wife and i want to be on the net at the same time.
is it possible to add another keyboard and mouse to my PC which would then allow another person to also navigate around.

so basically i could use one screen to do my thing and she could use another screen to do her thing.

has this been done before?

No, just get her a netbook or something.

As far as I know, that is not possible. Judging by the specs in your sig, another computer investment shouldn't be an issue.

You will be able to do this in the next windows server release. As far as regular opterating wystems, there is nothing I know of that would allow this. If it's just for web browsing, I would get an old P4 machine off craigslist, and put it on a KVM switch, so it can use one of your monitors when you want it to.
