Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Normally to start an application prior to anyone logging in you place the application to execute (using full PATH) in rc.local The location of that file is dependant upon your distro, check /etc and /etc/rc.d
Also, since I am unaware, could you expand on what x0rfbserver is, and more importantly, why you want to be able to login as anyone from anyone???
x0rfbserver is a program that shows you the exact 0 display and doenst open another xwindow session like the normal vnc!
i dont htink its the right playe to install it in the initta on my suse system because it has to start after xwindows is launched. so better add a line to the config of kdm?
but i dont know how to do that right
If it has to load after X starts, then it probably depends on how you startx. It looks like you start from a graphical login manager. If that is so, you probably need to edit the corresponding wm entry to start that wm. However that's distro specific and sometimes can be A LOT of work. I prefer the "startx" way of getting to X. Then all you will need to do is edit your .xinitrc file and add, with full path:
well, i guess thats too complicated to start this program automatically. so i tried to start it over a ssh connection but it doesnt start, seems not to use display 0 X11 forwaridn is enadbled on ssh server and ssh client and the display offest is set to 0!
Yah, me neither. I've never quite mastered the art of starting X remotely. There's quite a few threads on it, I just can't seem to get them to work for me. Supposedly it's extremely easy:
And then startx, but I don't seem to be able to get that to work
I have been using Gnome and I get it to start by going to the main menu Configuration>GNOME>Advanced>Sessions and sticking it in the Startup Programs tab. Unfortunately (for me anyway) it open a little window on the desktop and in the window lsit at the bottom. I want it to just run silently behind the scenes. I can't figure out how to get it to run on startup with KDE though.
