Default XP, two terminals

Okay, so here's my question.

I know you can have two comps going into one screen, one keyboard and one mouse.

I want the opposite.

I want to know if it's possible to have one comp, with two screens. Each screen has a keyboard and a mouse with a cursor on each screen running XP, but they are still the same comp. So say, when i'm doing something on one screen, I don't have to move the cursor to the second screen, i just move my hand to the second keyboard.

........................................|------------------{USB Keyboard+Mouse1}
............................------------ {Screen1}
{COMP (XP)}-----{
........................................|-------------------{USB Keyboard+Mouse2}

Just a few sites that have something like what you are describing
The only trouble is that the switches work as switches, switching conrol of the same desktop back and forth. It's not two independant environments, as they are the same.
