My first attempt to reply to this seems to have vanished somewhere, so here it
That's interesting. Do you know of anything in particular that I should look
at or test in this regard? Internet access to and from this machine appears to
be working perfectly. (I can ssh in from here and run a web browser and browse
web pages with no problem.)
On this note, it may be relevant to note that this machine is a LTSP 4.2 server.
All of the terminals come up just as they should when the server is booted up
-- the gdm login screens appear on all of the terminals; it's just the gdm
login screen on the server itself that fails to load.

Do you see anything wrong with this? It looks pretty much the same as what I
had on the Fedora 6 machine that this is replacing.
