I'm wanting to set up a couple of PCs to be able to run KDE remotly over ssh. 
I don't want to use XDMCP I'm using kdm and ideally would like to run 
something like:

exec ssh <remote host> startkde ;;

from /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession.

This seems to work if I have my home directories mounted over NFS, but 
otherwise I get ugly dcop problems. I also want to use arts over the network 
so the remote sessions can have sound. Does anyone know if what I am trying 
to do is possible, and if so how to do it. Perhaps there is a better way to 
go about this?
