What's the best way to have two windows be modal?

Basically, I have a window that gets spawn as modal. Within this window a user can open another window. When this new window is first opened, it is above the mask, but if you click back on the original window the new window gets pushed back behind the mask.

Any ideas on how to have to windows above a single mask?

is it not appropriate to just make the second window modal as well? that way you can't switch back to the first

I had the same idea before, but it doesn't work too well. The second window provides information, which will help guide the user on the initial modal window, so they really need to be able to switch back and forth.
