        All of that is available if you look through the mailing lists and are 
patient. This takes rather a lot of time though, as I've recently had cause to 
find out. I wrote up something which might help. It describes what I remember 
doing, anyway.

        If you would be kind enough to go try this out and make me aware of any
problems you have, I'd appreciate it. I'd like to correct any issues with it 
and see if it can't be made into a passable HOWTO. If you currently have any 
packages for X installed, I'd recommend uninstalling them and starting over 
unless you're fairly sure it's a configuration problem. I don't know anywhere 
near enough
about Debian to try troubleshooting package issues.
