Add to boot loader


I have Mandrake and my business wants to use it for thinclients, so what we need is to be able to have it boot right to the RDP. Is this possible or are we dreaming beyond our means?

We have a remote desktop connection to our servers wich hold all our programs. We found the rdp and got it to work but now we want it to load automatically so our associates won't get confused

No, when I first turn on the comp it brings up a list of things to load, and it will automatically load linux if you don't touch it. What I want to do is add the rdp to that list and have it start automatically instead of linux. Is this possible?

hi there


what i know is
RDP is service which runs on a protocol on a operating system

so u need to load a OS(linux/windows) first to make that RDP work

hi there

what i think u can do is that u can hide the boot up messages and let linux load in background

so that ur clients won't know about what is going on in background

regards

Alright so then is there a way that I can make the rdp start automatically without having to click the icon?
