Okay. There is a client installed with freenx, however it is not 
pretty, not user friendly, and I'm not sure it even works. 
I went to and downloaded the Debian Woody package and
installed it. Worked fine. 

It would be nice if the freenx client was integrated into the 
"Terminal Server Client" and moved into the supported repositories.
