This is not something I can do easily, since you have the NX client
running on a seperate machine. With ltsp it's easy because I don't
need any authentication to take over the remote client machine (I am
already root on the ltsp server or sudo). So with NX I would need to
make a new version that employs ssh keys and that opens up a whole new
bag of worms. Again if anyone wants to take on this task to make a new
version for NX  or LDM (LTSP 5) I would be willing to help exlpain my
C++ code and help code as much as I can. It's only about 1700 lines
and most of it is for the GUI.
