Thanks, X -indirect works, but it also requires an IP address, so it only shows that one server. I want it to list the 2 or 3 X servers that are available. Hey, at least a got to SEE the Chooser window ;-) I want to have the chooser come up with a list of available X servers, which should always be the localhost, and then either my school server or my home server. As for the reply about the 'Xnest', really cool, I had tired it before, unfortunatly the laptop I run it one is 800x600, so the window is only 640x480 -- really hard to browse files/internet/etc. If the laptop ran 1024x768, probably be a really good choice. Thanks
-Anyone else got some ideas??

I have a laptop that runs as a stand alone sometime, and other times as an X terminal with my desktop as my server, and other times as an X terminal with my K12LTSP server at school. I have found that xdm has the ability to allow you to "choose" which one you log into, but I could not figure it out. I have already gone through the mini-how-to, but could not get it to work. I was hoping that someone out there could give me a little insight.

At least, that is how I understand the documentation for the chooser feature of xdm. Am I understanding this right?
