How to log into multiple gmail/gtalk accounts using google talk

This is a simple solution based on what I learned online. The idea is to basically start multiple instances of the google talk client without having each of those instances use mutexes. This allows the applications to co-exist without any problems. These applications can be started by creating a common gtalk startup shortcut with the switch nomutex:
"c:\path_to_google_talk_app\googletalk.exe" /nomutex
For example, in my case I have used the following path:
"c:\program files\google\googletalk.exe" /nomutex
This is the link that should be posted in the shortcut execution path created on windows. Please google more on how to create a short cut if not known already.
