does anyone know of a way we can open multiple SFB accounts on the same PC?  I'm sure there must be a way to do this with trillian or some other 3rd party client?

thx in advance.

No, the client only supports a single login. But you can use the OWA client as well, via the browser. If you need more than that, you can always run a small VM or two :)

If your OS is Windows, you could use PortableApps and Skype portable. You could then copy the Skype Portable to several different directories and then use a different account within each of those "Skypes":
