Lingering Users and Painfully Slow OpenOffice Startup

We've run edubuntu 7.10 about a week and we don't have any problems caused by
OpenOffice. We have seen that OpenOffice and firefox, take time to
load, but we have
tracked the problem to gnome-panel and/or nautilus.

Because of that we have tried xfce4 and with xfce we got better performance.

Do anybody know how to set xfce4 as default for ldm? I've tried files
like .xinitrc and
.dmrc or similar.

PS. Our server has 4Gb memory and 2 * 2.4 GHz Intel P4. We are about
30 users at a time. DS
