I played around with freenx and have just settled on vnc for as little 
as I need it. I have a few things secured down, and for external access, 
I run it over SSH. Perhaps another time to open this back up. I have 
Samba and mail to get working new. Plus I will be upgrading my domain 
server so I can finally implement DNSSEC.
