Hello,

I am trying to make a small computer w/ a usb thumb drive boot directly to linux and then from have linux boot directly into a remote desktop setting.

I got as far a getting my computer to boot directly from the thumb drive into linux however I have no idea how linux works to get RDP to auto load or auto start after linux boots up. I want it to boot up linux and then autostart remote desktop connection (with the connection settings that I specify). The linux distrabutions are listed here but I am using pupp linux...

Thanks In advance

"You can add your program to ~/.Xclients ~/.xinitrc. The usage of these
files is however distribution specific. If you are targetting a
particular distribution, analyze the script files in /etc/X11/init for
that distribution and see the usage of the above files

If you are wanting a solution that is distribution and WM independant,
you will need to add a link to the startup folder for each of the WM
that you intend to support."
