There is also the kiosk-HOWTO:

I was going to try it yesterday, but ran out of time and didn't want to rush 
the install of all the gnome libs it needs.

Well, I'm going to try this route:

0. Slackware + kde + konqueror
1.  Slackware + blackbox + konqueror
2.  Slackware + blackbox + galeon
3.  Slackware + blackbox + hacked mozilla

I won't get specific about my goals, but the main thing is that JavaScript 
needs to run very well.  In the past konqueror had some trouble with this 
which is why I was mainly looking at mozilla. 

I'll report back as soon as I have more info.

-- Thanks
