HI all

Talked with Dean a bit about this and he suggested that I reload and try 
it again.  Welp, did that and I have the same issue: thin client boots 
and comes up to the login screen, then when I enter logname and passwd, 
it waits, the recycles back to the login screen.  I have NOT found any 
messages in /var/log/secure -or- [chroot] /var/log/secure.  In fact, 
there are not any message at all about this issue.
