Quick X update

With some reading of the xorg.conf man page (man 5 xorg.conf) and the xorg.conf.example file I got X working with fluxbox. I created a dummy user (tvuser - how imaginative) with very little permissions (not part of the users group, can't su/sudo, etc) to autologin and start X. I also created an admin user so that I can start to tighten up security.

Since I use ssh mainly to log into the box (so I can type from my laptop keyboard where the multiple Firefox windows are) I configured SSH to do X forwarding. I use fluxbox as my window manager on my laptop; so after emerging it I scp'd all my files from my .fluxbox directory to my users directories.
