Sure. You have a couple of options: either have the users each run a VNC
server (it will pick different display numbers), use some init scripts to
start multiple VNC servers, or use inetd/xinetd to fire off multiple VNC
servers. Note the theme of multiple VNC servers...
Since you are wanting to use the Java applet, I don't know if the
inetd/xinetd method would work.
Take a look at http://faq.gotomyvnc.com/fom-serve/cache/65.html for some
tips on starting the VNC server at boot.
