You might be able to start another terminal session by hitting ctrl-f1 (shift-f1/alt-f1 can't remember which) and login to check the status of the server. Or telnet into the server via another machine and check. Once in, and it's only the terminal session that is locked, you can boot that user or kill XTerm for that user - thereby freeing the lock. Good Luck. -- Anthony Baratta President Keyboard Jockeys "Conformity is the refuge of the unimaginative."
