Thanks!

But now i seem to have a problem.

Code: [Select]
failed in waitforX
I read in this thread: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=12291.0 (http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=12291.0)

Hi slkpg
Type  cat .xsession  (note the leading period)
Execute the first line but omit the part that reads   >/dev/null
See what errors if any it reports and post them.

Sooo... i should just type this in the terminal and hit enter?

Code: [Select]
Xvesa -br -screen 1024x768x32 -shadow -2button -mouse /dev/input/mice,5 -nolisten tcp -I

If you want some customization, Openbox and Fluxbox are great and lightweight either.
