I am having the same problem running Xwin as Nick Thompson reported.  When I
run Xwin I get the following messages:

scheduling timer: Invalid argument
Couldn't open RGB_DB '/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb'
_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

Then I get an ERROR dialog box that says:

Direct Draw Init Failed


I have DirectX 7.0 installed on my computer.  It works fine for other
DirectX applications.  The system is a Pentium 200 with 96 MB of RAM.  I
have S3 Virge 325 PCI onboard video with 2MB of RAM.
