[K12OSN] quirky behaviour

Sounds like the XDM server isn't running.  What's happening is that the 
X11 server in /opt/ltsp/i386 (the one the thin client loads and runs) is 
indeed starting, but when it goes to do the xdm query, nothing's 
responding.  Do a "ps ax | grep gdm" and see if anything shows up.  If 
not, then you might be running kdm, so do "ps ax | grep kdm", and see if 
anything shows up.  Failing that, try the same thing for the original 
one, which goes by the totally original name of...xdm.  :-)

Let us know your results.
