Just a couple of quick questions:

	I'm running a 1.0 kernel (not mrg - it crashes on me) on my IIx.  
I downloaded X (as made available by Brad - thanks !!!), and it seems to 
run, sort of.

	I'll admit it, I'm a novice X user (at best), so I just expected 
to type startX, and that it would come up all nice and pretty.  Here's 
what I get:

	A hatched background, and a single console window.

	Pressing the mouse button (standard Apple ADB mouse), or either 
of the 2nd and 3rd button equivalents (option --> and option <--) does 
nothing.  I can type commands into the console (like xclock), but they 
always come up in the upper left hand corner of the window, in front of 
the console. At this point I can't regain use of the console until I 
control-c out of whatever I ran.
	I get the X cursor over the background, and the arrow cursor 
(with text input ability) when I'm over the console, but I can't get 
resize corners.

	Can someone help me ???  Or is there any help ???  Do I need to 
climb a mountain and sit with an X guru ???  Or will a couple of minutes 
with a bowl of chicken soup cure my ills ???
