0. Install any linux distro you feel at home with.
1. Create an account called something like "kiosk".
2. In the "kiosk" home directory, create a file called .xsession with these
3. Set up the display manager (login screen) to autologin to the account
Get the above page to have a meta refresh tag in it so that the browser
refreshes it every 30 seconds.
