Sorry, added question:
Anyone know of a way to enable a VNC so I can access the login screen?
IOW; if I need to perform maintenance on one of my clients windows
machines (often), apply updates & reboot I can have the UltraVNC
(http://www.ultravnc.com/) server on that machine init at boot and
provide me with the login screen. That way I can log into the admin mode
etc., perform my updates, then reboot & login at the user mode and leave
the machine in that state for the client.
On Ubuntu I can have the machine auto login & that works (especially now
that the HAL race problem has been fixed on Feisty :-), but I don't know
how to get it to allow me to VNC (securely would be preferred) into the
machine at only the login screen with no autologin. If I "Switch User"
from the exit button I can VNC back into the machine, but all I get is a
black screen & it just hangs.
