Which is explicitely *NOT* what he asked.
He asked how to set up gdm on one computer so you can -choose- what other
computer (ALSO running [gxk]dm) to connect to. There is some code (or at
least there was in gdm 2.0) to let you choose a host (the choser), which
does work, he just asked how to set it up.
I remember getting it set up (halfway) with gdm 2.0 at one point, I just
don't remember how I did it. (I don't think it was running from gdm, I
think I just launched it manually or something).

Also not true. X -query x.x.x.x :1
