Hi Bill,

/usr/X11R6/bin/startx: Bourne shell script text

It's a script. Go in there and make it do whatever you want. And you'll see
when you look in there, it is really simple and just calls xinit. And xinit
just calls X. So, you really need to refer to the X manpage, if you can't
make startx dance to your tune.

Hope that helps.
c,
Karen
