Xwin -multiplemonitors -rootless&
xterm -geometry +1600+0&

Puts an xterm at the top left of my second monitor (My system has three
monitors each at 1600x1200)

OK that was too easy. I'm getting the hang of this now. So 
all that is outstanding is "How do I start a window OTHER 
than at 0,0 ?" ( I may actually be getting to a point where 
I could program it myself, but lets stick with what is 
available first <g> )

Now that I can get into KDE, reading the man stuff is 
easier, the old grey cells are warming up and I can remember 
how to do things, but how do I find out what I should be 
doing with the likes of .xserverrc -if at all - i.e. Is 
there a recomended way of setting up configurations?
