Using
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=236053 I got x11vnc to work so that my OLPC can rdesktop into my main "server" computer.

Question 1. How do I get the thing to get its own desktop / login? And not just watching mine.

Question 2. How do I get sound as well as picture through rdesktop?

Did that. but that just logs into the current desktop. I want multiple users to be able to log into the server and get their own desktop.

If you followed those instructions you should have a new X session on display :1, discrete from the :0 you can sit at.
