Thanks again. I set SCREEN_01 = shell since X always crashes at this
point. Then startx manually. The XF86Config.1 file is created, and I
check with more and it has the right stuff. But it still won't fire up.
So now I am scrolling through /var/log/XFree86.0.log to see where my
errors are. Hopefully I'll be able to post back with some positive
Thanks for the help. At least now I have a decent troubleshooting path.
