REALLY Locking Down XFCE 4.4 (Xubuntu) (Or suggest alternatives)
 
So, basically what I'm trying to do is create a Linux image that has just a connection to the terminal server, and an icon to shut down the computer. Nothing more, nothing less.

Because a lot of these systems are older (PII-350 is the lowest, with one oddball Celeron 366), I've chosen to use Xubuntu as the OS.

Now, I want to completely lock these down. I don't even want people to be able to change the wallpaper.

I've tried the kiosk mode options, but it seems pretty limited as to what you can do with it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm also interested in any alternatives you may have.

I have heard of a few alternatives to xfce but I haven't tried any of them, and from what I've heard most of them should work on legacy systems. there's a list of them at this website http://xwinman.org/otherdesktops.php.
