Uh... 'xterm' is an X client program that needs to have an X server to
connect to -- ie. you have to startx before you can run xterm.  Show us
your /var/log/Xorg.0.log and we can tell you if that's what is biting you=
=2E

Do you mean returning to the system console after running X?  That
depends on your graphics hardware IIRC.  For certain Intel chipsets,
once you've switched to X windows, you can't get back to the system
console without rebooting.  If you really need to run X on such a setup,
I'd recommend setting up slim (x11/slim) or a similar display manager
and always working in the X environment.  Or else avoid X completely.

	Cheers,
