First, thanks for all your help on the boot with NT.

I promised to come back with more (stupid) questions .. Here I am.

I configured Xfree86 (3.3.3.) on FreeBSD 2.2.8. The startx command works
fine, but when I try to load any other window manager, I get the message "in
function main:<<ERROR>> can't open display. xhost return the same mesage
"unable to open display".

I made a quick search on the archive and found a message saying that I
should enter this command:
DISPLAY={hostname} :0.0 ; export DISPLAY .... but what am I suppose to use
as {hostname} ?

Could you help me with this one too?
