Fedora 13 doesn't appear to have gdmsetup, which appears the tool you were
referring to in System --> Administration --> Login Window.

Your suggestion below may be correct in principle, because I also
found that I can't login to the server from another Linux box

X -query server_name :1

All I get is a black screen, that sits there until I return to the
original console screen from which I launched X and kill the job.

So it may be that FC13, out of the box doesn't allow remote
xdmcp sessions. Some years ago I knew how to set that up,
but a lot of things got moved around in Fedora. For example,
/etc/inittab no longer launches X.

So the result remains. I can get the k12ltsp login screen,
but no users can login.

Anyone know of a way to accomplish at the command line what
Patrick was suggesting from gdmsetup?
