Hmmm.  Maybe X doesn't start if you use these for some reason.

You could try fixing it by removing the middle " and run startx again to
see what happens.  If xorg.conf is not being correctly created, that would
be a problem.  To work around a bad xorg.conf you could save a working
file in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/X11/xorg-cj.conf, then add 


and reboot.  Rather than autodetect a new one, you could use the static
one.  One way to get a working one would be to try gicinh fixing it.
Another would be to use a live cd in the client (say ubuntu or knoppix),
boot it up and snag the working xorg.conf.

Except that it didn't work when you looked at that right?
