    Works great ... just a sidenote:

    After creating the guest account, you should log into the guest at least once with the password provided at creation. I was required to change the initial password on first login. If you already wiped out the password by editing /etc/shadow, you'll have to do it all over again.

    Moreover KDM (Kubuntu-login-screen) has a bug. I get the mandatory prompt to change the initial password. But I cannot type into any of the text fields (maybe, it just doesn't echo stars for the letters I type ... extremly confusing). To work around, switch to a text console with ctrl+alt+f1 and log in as guest, change the password, exit and go back to the graphical screen with ctrl+alt+f7 or ctrl+alt+f8 whichever it was.

    Thanx

    Well, it doesn't work for admin account. Once you login to the admin account with the guest method (sysadmin or netadmin) you can use the features as it says incorrect password.
