That would certainly simplify things :-) I know that I'm not the first alpha

I thought that should work... I'll try to start it manually later, in the
mean time, though, I thought I'd mention that I noticed an xdm.core file
floating around after trying to start xdm with the edited Xservers file...
And yes, the symbolic link is in place.
Is there anyway I can recompile Xtga without XKB? I've rebuilt from the X11
sources before so I can handle that if I just know how to disable XKB.
