Hi, I'm new to linux so far love it. Just have a stupid question: When I need to config or compile a program & it says to compile in X in readme file, can i just use an xterm or do i need to close down my current GUI and start up X?

I've never heard of any program that had to be "compiled" in X. You can compile a program "with" X, which means you need to have the XFree86 libs and header files installed in order for X support to be compiled in. Otherwise, it may mean that you need to be running X in order to execute the program itself.

Unless, the program itself has a graphical frontend to it's compiling, in which case you can just execute from within an xterm in your X session
