I also find it very appealing to offer users of my computer a display prompt
that would be sleek in appearance, and yet abundant in capability.
I'm using xdm currently, since I cannot get gdm to boot. I would be
interested in knowing where to find good resources dealing with the subject
of modifying the appearance of xdm. Has anyone come across such
I do admit I have not begun to search. Perhaps I could find all I need, but
would appreciate any help that the list's members have to spare.
