Whew! Thank you ALL for helping me on this. Turns out that overall, I didn't have
the /usr/local/bin in my root path and for my user, I *smacks himself on the head*
didn't have .xinitrc in my /home/user directory. So everything is great! :) . . .

When I get out of AS, This message appears:

X Error of failed request: BadDrawtable (invalid Pixmap or window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:    62(X_CopyArea)
  Resource id in failed request:                    #x#######
  Serial number of failed request:                ###
  Current serial number in output stream:    ###

I also get this message right before I get my prompt back:

tty_io.c: process 265(gpm) used obsolete /dev/cua0 - update software to use

now the 2nd one kinda tells me what's wrong and how to fix it- but anyone know
how to fix it? OH! and these 2 errors are unrelated as far as I know. Thanks a
whole HEAP! :)
