It tells me that the server is already active.  I have removed the lockfile, 
but it made no difference.

I haven't a clue what this is talking about, but since I have selinux in 
permissive mode it shouldn't be interfering with things, I think/hope.  I'm 
leaving this one alone until I get X sorted out.

Just in case, I renamed xorg.conf, so that F9 could do its own thing.  That 
didn't make any difference, either.
