Kevin, I went to the backports.ubuntuforums.org web site and followed
their instructions for adding their urls to my /etc/apt/sources.list
Then I ran sudo apt-get update
Then I ran sudo apt-get install nxserver
Everything came down and installed. I also searched for the libstdc
++2.10-glibc2.2 package by starting synaptic package manager.
I then went to http://fedoranews.org/contributors/rick_stout/freenx/ and
followed the directions there for the fedora install.
shows you how to add your user and password to the server. It doesn't
look exactly like she wrote it, but it's fairly straightforward.
$ sudo nxserver --adduser name
$ sudo nxserver --passwd name
