Fri Dec 1 10:22:47 UTC 2006

using LTSP on Edgy Eft (6.10)

I installed as per Thinclient HOWTO.
The client gets a logon screen into which i put the details of a user 
that i know can logon through SSH. Client screen goes dark for approx 10 
seconds then comes back with the logon screen again.

Log files(see below) seem(?) to show a valid logon
So why dont i get a desktop??
Am i logged in and then straight out again?
Where should i be looking for what? error message
