Yes - but that means having gdm installed! And once I had sorted out (with a
lot of help and on a spare computer!) how to do it, it was very quick and
easy. My husband now has a system that will boot from switch-on to desktop
in 32s. (When he was complaining earlier it was taking 1m40s, so I am hoping
that he will be pleased.)
"All" I have to do now is put the required icons on the desktop using idesk,
and work out how to have a shutdown icon.
