You can open both accounts simultaneously as explained in this article: http://semi-legitimate.com/blog/item/multiple-dropbox-instances-on-windows-7

thank you dan :-).  I used that website info to have 2 running at once by putting one in the registry location you mentioned (I first put both there but they didn't both open at reboot) and the other in the startup folder for my user.  is there anyway to have them both run at system level?  thanks and sorry for my naiveté :-(
