	In the circumstance when you are serving a flock of dumb clients 
from a single machine. NCD Xterms for example. In this case you *NEED* a *dm 
running with network access turned on but the machine itself may not even have 
a video.
	This setup is a small percentage of the installed base but it does 
exist and is used.
