[K12OSN] Fedora 9, LTSP 5, and KDE

Give K12LTSP 5.0EL (based on CentOS 5) a try.  It looks virtually 
identical to FC6, but with updated apps.  It will be supported until the 
year 2014, so you don't have to upgrade every year.  It has LTSP 4.2, 
and it contains the familiar (and stable) KDE 3.5.  I just upgraded here 
at home from K12LTSP 4.2EL to 5.0EL, and while 4.2EL was and is 
rock-stable, I'm glad I did the upgrade.

Do you GNU <http://www.gnu.org>?
Microsoft Free since 2003 <http://www.cmosnetworks.com>--the ultimate 
antivirus protection!

>> With the help of Sean Harbour, I have users able to login to the thin clients using their Active Directory accounts and accessing their home directories stored on a Windows server.  Thank you very much Sean.
>> We are trying to get the Display to KDE so we can use the Kiosk Admin Tool to manage the thin client desktops.  We have been doing it with pretty good success using FC6/ltsp4.2.
>> Does anyone out there know how to configure the system to only allow thin client logins to get KDE?  I have tried setting up /etc/sysconfig/desktop and editting the lts.conf to launch SCREEN_07=xdmcp.  No luck there.  I have tried going to the /usr/share/xsessions/ and leaving only kde.desktop.  Still no luck.
>> I understand the thin clients use ldm to login and launch the desktop.  I can find very little on how to configure it.  Thanks in advance.
