    ph34r, you're a legend! The first two are pretty much exactly what I was thinking. Bit busy at the moment, but will definately try these out next week.

    Thanks.

    Re:Serving X to Linux and Windows Clients?

    This is the one, as recommended by p34r - http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/mini/XDM-Xterm/xdm.html . I have it working, and am going to look at the security aspects, and also look at the network traffic involved (compared to other thin client solutions ie Citrix).

    I'm also going to follow Compunuts advice, vis a vis-
    Why not just install the minimal version of Linux ( such as Debian or strip down version of any distro ) on your wife box as dual boot?? I have my Debian box on P 233 with 64 MB RAM and it's pretty good with IceWM on it and runs smooth. I know it would be hard for OO.O or SO to run on that P 233 but you can export to your wife's Linux box easily from your main box. Don't even bother with WinXserver stuff.
    Thanks to all for the help.
