sudo less /var/log/messages

ls /var/log

to see the other log files your server is storing.  There is a wealth
of information there - it is always the first place I go looking when
something does not work.  Most of the messages are in plain language,
but you can google for error messages that are cryptic.  You do have
to sudo to read them.

Good idea.

It never hurts to have a test account set up.  With the thin clients,
you are setting up a session on the server.  It really should not be
an issue in Linux, but for sanity's sake it is easier to troubleshoot
if you have a test account set up.

Good luck,
