If you graphics board can already handle two displays, then why not just localize them to the current machine? The responsiveness will be higher as well as the usefullness of this move. I am doing this now using my NVIDIA graphics card.

Because I want to share my computer for two people using at the same time. (two monitors, two keyboards and two mouses) –  user187589 Jan 13 '13 at 7:20
I don't see how you are going to share/split additional keyboards or mice operations one one platform between two users. –  mdpc Jan 13 '13 at 7:22
miniframe can do that, and it is using terminal services to create an additional session –  user187589 Jan 13 '13 at 7:23
Then miniframe apparently is your solution. –  mdpc Jan 13 '13 at 7:25
At first, I want to know how to create another session using terminal services and you driving it into a different direction. –  user187589 Jan 13 '13 at 7:29

Windows 7 natively does not support more than one user connected with Remote Desktop or Remote Desktop + Local user. These features are reserved for Windows Servers for obvious reasons. However, if you search a bit there are modified versions of termsrv.dll(plus some reg changes) that allow you to have multiple RDP sessions.
