How CPU/RAM heavy are these 3 only?
Is it absolutely necessary t run them on the 486?

Ah, that makes more sense.

Presumably I could put the xhost line in the startx script?
Whereabouts should it go?
I am still confused as to how I would specify which window manager
I want to use and which computer it goes on?

Doh! Of course :)
Is there anyway to run them locally without cp'ing them to the local
HD? And speaking of which, is there a way to cp across a LAN or would
I have to FTP them or use Samba or something?
And one more quick question: Do I need to tell each computer the IP
address of the other one?
