I think there may be confusion on this suggestion. The program xinetd 
has nothing to do with "X". It has to do with managing network servers 
such as telnet and the like.

I am, however, loathe to change the scripts in init.d. I have done this 
in the past and am even good at it. The problem is that some time later 
some maintenance comes along and wipes out my updates. So, while I *can* 
update system level scripts, I try to avoid it.

Any other options?

Sometimes I wonder.  Were our faith able to stand upright and look around, would it be looking down at the mustard seed or standing in awe of the height and breadth of it.
