creating an X server/client is a bit science and a bit art
and probably a little voodoo if you're using they're card.

there's more than one way to do it -- that's a consensus.

don't think of it being limited, like M$, to desktop themes.

if it helps, you could think of X as just another process.
the catch is how the process starts -- is it exec'd or is it fork'd.

redhat used to include a HOWTO for X on their cdrom 

look at doc/howto/Xfree86-.gz -- it's written by eric raymond
he's got some good examples and explanations

mike, Xfree86-.gz is about 9.17KB -- if you can't find it -- i can
mail it to you directly, as i have it on an old redhat cd
