OK.  That's easy (also speaking from what I think should be so rather
than what I've tried, but you affirmed the last one).  Have the server
auto-login to an account that automatically cranks up whatever apps
you want pre-loaded.  A startup script is one way, but using a GUI
that remembers what you had open last time you shut down seems easier.
 Given that the server isn't used by an actual human this shouldn't be
a problem.  If someone does use the console, another solution would be
to have something in rc.local that started a vncserver that cranked up
whatever you want to run.
