    You can open two instances of excel by clicking on the start button and typing excel.
    once you get two instances running you can go to file and open in excel.

    There is a reg hack for this, but when I did it, it went back to normal after reboot.

    Once you have the two instances of excel running as stpbby suggested you can either use the aero snap feature if available and grab them each by it's respective title bar and bang them against the left and right side of your screen, or alternately right click on the taskbar and choose show windows side by side.

    You should be able to use the view menu to open. In 2007 there is an arrange all button you can use to set how to arrange them.

    I don't know what version you are using but in Office 2010 it's very simple. Open one spreadsheet and then go to File\Open and open a second one. Then go to the VIEW panel and click "View Side by Side". Done.
