Here's an easy one. I've done this before, but totally forgot how to go about it.  I need to have X Windows start up automatically when the RH 5.0 box starts up, so the login occurs in X Windows (actually Metro-X).  Where do I put the command and what is the command?  Thanks a bunch!

The command is xdm, and you can put it as the last line in your rc.local i do believe.  You had better get it running well by hand first though, i seem to remember that the configuration of xdm is sort of non-trivial...
