Did you resolve this one? I seem to recall some magic in
some /etc/ config files, but nothing too spectacular was

Does this approach work for you?
Yes, using the KDE 3.5 K menu's "switch user" worked, at least on my old

Is there any way to set up a second kdm login on vt8 without having to
run "switch user" first?
I can post existing configuration files for both machines if someone can
let me know which are important for doing this. I would like to restrict
the remote logins to the other machine only (assigned 192.168.1.100 to
the old and 192.168.1.101 to the new) and *not* use encryption as this
would slow the PII-266 machine too much.
Thanks for your suggestion and any further help.
