Perhaps it's just a problem with the Dell Optiplex I tested it on.  The machine this is 
actually for, a Micron (does Micron even make PCs any more?) is at another site, so I'll 
take the CD there this weekend and try it.  Interestingly, I tried the PXES bootable CD 
in the Dell, choosing XDM at the boot menu, and it works just fine, boots up the login 
screen from the server in just a few seconds.

(BTW Eric, I tried to google for your original messages about the CD but couldn't find any.)
