[K12OSN] users not logging into my thin client environment

So, I have successfully set up my LTSP server and the clients boot 
successfully.  I have even changed the default LDM theme and it looks 
brilliant!  But now, I have a small problem that my users upon logging 
in are not in the LTSP environment (the one in /opt/ltsp/i386).  They 
are actually logged into the server environment.

My server is running F13 and my thin client environment image is F12 
(since the F13 ltsp enviro wasn't building and due to stability on the 
client).  Anyway, everything seems to be working great on the client in 
spite of this.  I do, however want my users to be using the proper 
environment, since my changes and customisations for that image needs to 
be replicated to the client, and obviously the users do not need all the 
services on the server's image.

My question is how do I remedy this so that users login to the correct 
environment.  The login screen is taken from 
/opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm/themes, but once the user logs in they have 
the F13 background and everything.  It seems to me that the solution 
should be pretty easy, but I have not found much information on how to 
properly  create user accounts.  I have the users home directory mounted 
in /opt/ltsp/i386/home/username, so this part is working.

~Thanks for your help!
