Run Xconfigurator, and then check that /etc/X11/X is correctly
installed as a symbolic link to /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_whatever.
startx runs /usr/X11R6/bin/X which is a symlink to /etc/X11/X,
which is itself a symlink to whichever X server you wish to use.
To uninstall Metro-X, I guess the simplest is to use something
find / -name metro\*
and deleting the files (after making sure there's nothing else
than Metro-X there! :-) That should include /usr/X11R6/bin/Xmetro
and /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/metroX or whatever that directory is
called. Perhaps there's also something in /etc. You can probably
also do it with rpm if you have a RedHat release (I guess Metro-X
comes only with RedHat releases anyway), the package is called
something like metroess.
