This document describes the basic ideas for using XDM to manage X terminals. It is not meant to be a comprehensive discussion of all the features of XDM, but a gentle introduction to what XDM can do.

For a full discussion about the installation and configuration of X terminals, please refer to the 'Thin-client' HOWTO, from the Linux Documentation Project or the Linux Terminal Server Project (see Section 7).
