I'm not aware of the resources like loginShell -- where are they?

I did, thanks.

Would I write (instead of where it has vt220 or whatever)
xterm-xfree86 in /etc/ttys to get this?  Would this also make it
automatically a login shell?

Could you also point me to the man pages or FAQs where the resources
and things like using xterm at the console, etc, are described?
