I wish I had your luck girl, or some of it would rub off on me.
Its been a while but I don't recall even being able to do startx as gene, 
ISTR it brought up the X in the middle of the screen, and then went away 
in another 2-3 seconds.  I need to reboot to a newer kernel I just built, 
if I can get it to boot (fat fingered typu in grub.conf the first time), 
and see if, without selinux, it will run for me.  Of course that means a 
week of piddling around getting all the stuff setup so x looks decent 
too.  Then go thru the autorelabel process after rebooting to a fedora 
kernel with all that stuff in it.

Things would be a heck of a lot easier to test if I could just goto tty2's 
screen, login as gene, and start a second session of x as me.  But that 
upchucked and rebooted me the last time I had that oh so brilliant idea.  
That would probably need more ram and this board is tapped out at 1gb of 
ram now.

Cheers, Gene
