Virtual screen accessed by Screen Sharing

Hi,

I'm trying to create a virtual screen, (maybe xvfb? or any other virtual screen buffer) and be able to use Screen Sharing to connect to it.

The setup is that I have a Mac Mini connected to the TV. But when my girlfriend is using Front Row, I can't use Screen Sharing at the same time from my MBP...

Most things can be done by ssh, but not all are as efficient.

Any good solution or help on the way?
