Small installion for TS client, etc.


I'm looking for specific suggestions on using a small Linux distribution running either TS Client, or rdesktop to log into a Windows Terminal Server. I know how to have rdesktop automatically logon to a terminal server after Linux boots, but how do I get Linux to automatically shut down after the user logs out of the terminal/rdesktop session? Is this possible and if it is, how is it configured? If it can't be done, then giving all users access to system shutdown is an option.

Thanks,
Buster Lee

as allways id reccoment debian, and find and install the svgalib version of rdesktop (then you dont need an x window system) the whole install should be under 200mb if you do this.

as far as the auto shutdown goes, write a script in perl

system("rdesktop remmoteip");
system("halt");

something like that should do the job, after you log into the linux box, run "myscript.pl" to get up and running
