[K12OSN] renaming IceWM

The other thing you could do would be to write a little script for each 
application and in the script check to see if /home is local or nfs mounted, and 
then use ssh if it is nfs mounted, and don't if it isn't.  For example:

if mount | grep home |grep : ; then
   ssh  computer1 ooffice

Do it by hand first of course, because I think the above if statement will 
return a 1 when it fails and a 0 when successful.  The greps look for home and 
then look for a colon which I think will only be present if a hostname is part 
of the providing partition, i.e., its mounted across the network via nfs.  There 
may be a more robust way to detect it.

I was thinking about creating a submenu that says "computer 2" and under that I could have an OpenOffice selection which runs the appropriate ssh command.  But I was kinda hoping that I could come up w/ something a little more transparent than that.
