X windows problem

I run xdm, which can be enabled by editing /etc/ttys
and changing the line 
ttyv8   "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon"  xterm   off secure
ttyv8   "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon"  xterm   on secure

and then kill -HUP 1 which will restart init. Init uses
/etc/tty to determine which processes to start.

Cheers, Roger
