Hi Mike,

The short answer is yes.

The longer answer is FreeBSD, like all unices, has been built from the ground up as a
multi-user network operating system.

Allowing multiple users to work at the same time on a FreeBSD box is as
simple as enabling ssh and adding users to the system.  If you want to
give them graphical access, you can use X forwarding, or if you are on
windows machines, VNC.  I recommend TightVNC (http://www.tightvnc.com/).
I have worked on an easy way to allow users a graphical login without
having to make them run X servers on windows or manually setup a VNC
session.  It is documented at

It is incomplete at the moment.  All I need to do is clean up the
presentation and grammar (I was always better at maths :), and insert
instructions on use of KDE's Desktop Manager.
