I'm running Windows Server 2008 and have 5 user accounts.  Is there a way so each user can run a separate instance of an application like it is on their own machine?  Right now when User1 starts RealVNC and then User2 starts RealVNC is says its already running and crashes. I would like User1 and User2 to have totally separate desktops on teh server.

Is this possible or must I use VirtualPC or VMWare to achieve this?

Use Terminal Services.  It will do this.

You will have to use a virtual machine environment. I suggest either Microsoft Virtual PC or VMWare Workstation. Both will do what you want.
