Re: [vox-tech] Setting up X

I loaded the fonts and I got an X screen.  But my mouse doesn't work (as
soon as I touch it, it goes to the upper-right corner of the screen).  Also
I deleted the /etc/X11/X86Config file, but I still get the X screen; Where
is it getting its config info?  I don't think I'm even using the config
files I generate with the various generator tools (XFree86 -configure or
xf86config).  I'm going to look around the X site if/when I get some time
