RE: [K12OSN] logging in as root



Ok, let me try again.  I have the server up.  Now, I want to connect another
computer to it to act as the thin client.  Is what I installed (the k12tslp
ver 6) (on the server) preconfigured to do this?  Do I just need to
configure the client computer to boot to PXE?  Or will I have to do some
Google research to learn how to configure the server to accept client
connections?

XP can connect like I said, via 'ssh', via 'freenx', via 'vnc'...and 
more...via a samba share as well(but that's just accessing the 
filesystem, not the programs)....

how to run programs from the thin client...you sit at the thin 
client...login as your username...use the drop-down menus' at the top 
normally for KDE and Gnome if I'm not mistaken...(we use IceWM where it 
looks kinda like XP)...and in those drop-downs are tons of applications 
you can run.

For documentation the best resource is 'google'...depending on what you 
want to run/find/etc...

generalization questions are really hard to answer...if you want to 
learn Linux...Slashdot http://www.slashdot.org/ had a good article on 
some books for beginners(but not idiots)...last weekend.
