Starting a new instance of an application


I remember that in the old NeXTSTEP/OPENSTEP systems that MacOS X is based on, you were able to start a new instance of an application by holding the Alt key down (I think) while double-clicking on the application's icon in the file manager. This way you could have the same application running multiple times.

I tried different key combinations, but it seems this is not possible. Is this functionality available in MacOS X Jaguar?
