Thanks, I'll look into that. In the meantime UltraVNC is working just
fine (much better actually even via Wine), so I'll stick with that while
testing the other all linux/unix options.

Sorry, added question:

Anyone know of a way to enable a VNC so I can access the login screen?

IOW; if I need to perform maintenance on one of my clients windows
machines (often), apply updates & reboot I can have the UltraVNC
( server on that machine init at boot and
provide me with the login screen. That way I can log into the admin mode
etc., perform my updates, then reboot & login at the user mode and leave
the machine in that state for the client.

On Ubuntu I can have the machine auto login & that works (especially now
that the HAL race problem has been fixed on Feisty :-), but I don't know
how to get it to allow me to VNC (securely would be preferred) into the
machine at only the login screen with no autologin. If I "Switch User"
from the exit button I can VNC back into the machine, but all I get is a
black screen & it just hangs.
