confused about Xconfigurator --kickstart operation (still)



  i'm just playing around, trying to invoke Xconfigurator with the
--kickstart option at the command line, just to see what it would
generate as an XF86Config-4 file.  the problem is, no matter how i
try to run it, i keep getting the error messages that:

       Server doesn't exist, can't continue.
tried to use ../../use/X11R6/bin/XF86_VGA16

i've tried variations like:

  # Xconfigurator --kickstart
  # Xconfigurator --kickstart --preferxf4
  # Xconfigurator --kickstart --preferxf4 --driver /usr/X11R6/bin/X

and it's the same error each time.

  as i understand it, with XFree86 4.x, there is only one X server
program -- /usr/X11R6/bin/X -> XFree86, right?

  so, should i not be allowed to run this at the command line?  and
what's the correct syntax?

rday

p.s.  and if, when i finally get it to run, i'm assuming that the
--startxonboot option will edit /etc/inittab to give me a default
run level of 5, yes?
