I would like to ask you some things regards the X-server XWin.exe.

I've installed it in usr/X11R6/ as it is the default unpacking directory of
the following used (by me) files.

When running, from / (mounted on c:\unix)
bash$ usr/X11R6/bin/XWin.exe :0

I get:
scheduling timer: Invalid argument
_XSERVTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to root
pwin->width = 00000500
pwin->height = 00000400
pwin->paddedWidth = 00000a00
pwin->bitsPerPixel = 00000010
calling winAllocateFramebufferMemory
calling cfb16ScreenInit( 0a050330, 168f0000, 00000500, 00000400, 00000064,
064, 00000500 )
Successful addition of Screen 0xa0422e4 0xa050330
error opening security policy file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy
Switch: 0xa050330, 0xa044fb4

I can switch between the server (has Directx X server as window title), and
other applications, but the fullscreen of the server is black: I can't see
This happen even if I run the startxwin.bat batch file (moreover complaining
about xterm.exe not found).

I have NT 4.0 with service pack 5.

Could you help me please ?
Thank you very much.
