I would make sure you use the gdm 2.4.x package as xdmcp is fairly easy
to setup. All you have to do is activate xdmcp in gdm on the 1st
computer, then on the 2nd computer you have to issue X -query x.x.x.x in
a console (without any other X servers running)and then the 2nd
computers login will appear on the 1st.
