Unfortunately, no. Screen res is a global setting. The system will default to
the last one used for all users.

A workaround is to use a third party program to set the res for each user. One
I've found that works is MultiRes, available at
http://168.144.101.149/files/multires.exe (Entech Taiwan.)  Normally it runs
with an icon in the notification area. But it's also possible to run it in
non-resident command mode in a batch file. There's more info on that at
http://www.entechtaiwan.com/multires.htm

So, you can use it to set startup resolutions by creating a simple, 1 line,
batch file and placing it in each user's startup profile. Works here,
anyway...

e.g. two command lines:

User 1 - runs at 800x600, 32-bit color, 85Hz refresh

d:\multires\multires.exe /800,600,32,85 /exit

User 2 - runs at 1024x768, 32-bit color, 90Hz refresh

d:\multires\multires.exe /1024,768,32,90 /exit
