Re: XDMCP howto

David and Greg:

Yes, I will learn the DocBook.  For this particular moment, my assignment
can not allow me to help contribute to the LDP (but I love to).  Greg, can
you help me to Mark-up the document for me.  At the same time, I will look
into the license details as you suggested.
