    about X

    How do you set up X so you can remotely log into it from another system? And also how do you set up a system where you have more then one X screen so I can have lets say 3 or 4 X's running instead of just the one that pops up when i hit control alt f7

    Writing a guide to remote desktop logins is probably outside the scope of the forums.

    There are a few different pieces of software you can choose from.

    I don't usually run remote desktops, preferring just a ssh session, so I couldn't say if one is better than another. I have used TighVNC before and FreeNX before and they weren't too difficult to figure out.

    Search the web for guides. Post if you get stuck with a specific problem.

    about startx

    hey reed9 I did that startx --1 stuff you talked about on one of the other posts and it worked twice but then after i rebooted the pc it stopped working it tells me x is already running when i try it. I can still do the normal startx but the --1 or --2 or any of those no longer work.
