X11 on diskless problem

hi all,

We have a diskless laboratory where about 15 machines boot from a single 
server - redhat 7.3 -:(

I have created few basic directories in the "tftpboot" directory for each 
diskless client except "/usr". I export "/usr" from the server via NFS and 
mount is on each client.

Everything is working fine except X-server.

Now all the harware is quite heterogenous... each client has diffenrent 
video card/ monitor and mouse. 

So when we use "Xconfigurator" command on client to configure the X-server 
it goes upto the last stage and gives error simply saying "Could not start 

Any help / ideas / guess is highly appriciated !

Thanks in advance.
