Realize that the default background screen is the black and white stipple
pattern you're seeing.  After starting X (via xinit or startx), try
something like "xsetroot -solid red".

If you've tried this and still get only black and white, see what X is linked
to (xinit uses X, not Xsun or XsunMono).  Also verify that Xsun isn't a link
to XsunMono.

Also try "X -help" for more options (like forcing the use of a particular
frame buffer.
