Easy one: How to stop and restart "X" on Redhat 9

Hey Gang,

This is an easy one that's just bugging me.

How do I restart the Xserver on RedHat (I.E. in Solaris it would be /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin restart, or /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin stop - then start.)

Do I have to kill the gdm or xdm daemon and then use "startx" or what?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
