If you are refering to SCOLogin, then type scologin disable.  This will stop
andy current and future sessions.

If you are using XFree86, then simply remove xdm from whatever file it is
located in under /etc/rc2.d.

You can still get them, but you need to use ctrl-alt-Fx to switch from a
graphical session (Alt-Fx combinations are often used by window
managers).  If you still don't want the X server to start by default,
then as root:

scologin disable tty02

You can still start an X session by using startx.

1. X-windows in Windows 95 and type writers in X-windows

Hello!

I have 3 questions about X-windows:

Is there a good graphical bases typewriter (not editor) in which
i can write and layout text in x-windows, without using a bunch
of codes as in e.g. latech.

Is it possible to make a telnet like connection in a MS windows
based PC to a unix machine which is capable to run the X-windows
system. So i could use for example Xmaple when I am sitting home
where i dont have unix, but I do have a fast pc and internet.

Is there a special X-windows newsgroup?

Please e-mail me because i cant read the newsgroups so often.

thanks
