I have one user 'martin' who runs KDE1 and a user 'kde2' I do KDE2 cvs with.
Simply set the exports (QTDIR, KDEDIR and PATH) to the appropriate dirs in
the user's .profile (or .bash_profile on redhat) and make a .xinitrc for both
users, one calling $(KDEDIR)/bin/startkde and one $(KDE2DIR)/bin/startkde.

To make things simpler just use a script like the following:
export QTDIR=/usr/qt2
export KDEDIR=/usr/kde2
export PATH=/usr/kde2/bin:$PATH
and put it in your user's dir. Advantage is that you can do both with one
user by additionally writing a script which sets everything back to kde1.
