I can post the full guide for doing this. Personally I find that most
people have one user account for desktop based systems. Btw Xfce dm is
very annoying. It overrides other Display Managers including GDM. Plus
you can only run xfce with it. WDM is only a tiny bit heavier then XDM
but a pain to configure. Plus A shutdown button is really needed (Most
users I know struggle to shut WDM down).

Though if the poor person is on dialup you just have an annoying feature
taking up bandwidth. Please no weather icon. Also can we remove ntpdate!
from startup. I don't think that clock synchronisation is that important
(if users want it then they should be able to do it from the menu).
