OK, I should have provided more information...
I can get X to run beautifuly by using the command startx. It wil then run
the window manager of choice.
The only problem I am having is that the system starts with a text login,
which is no real problem, but I am trying to teach the family to appreciate
linux and a few friends also. Let's face it, most average everyday computer
users are not comfortable with a command prompt, or shell, or what have you.
Thus I would like to have the graphical login to impress the neighbors.
The thing I was looking for was the X configuration tool. On Mandrake it is
called XDrake or the like, but I cannot remember the equivalent on RH. I
know also that there are several different tools to achieve the same thing.
I just cannot remember the names of them.
The suggestions from all of you are splendid and I really appreciate them,
and I will report back on what I have found. I love the real technical
answers, as it helps me re-learn, or learn the way all this works. It is
hard to believe how much this has changed since RH5.2 and Mandrake 6.5!
