Sounds like an X display permissions issue. I conjecture from your
other message about using telnet that you are trying this over
telnet. You need to run xhost on your own system first. "man
xhost". To verify valid X connections over the X protocol or via SSH
tunneling (preferred), try xclock first.

That last question is wide open. I shall restrain myself :-)

There is no man page for xcdroast. If there was one, it probably
wouldn't explain the above issue.
