I have Champion 1.0 (in a cool yellow three ring binder) and got the
new Xconfigurator via ftp. I also ftp a vmlinux and a ram disk image
for the b&w to start with. When I first tried X I got the message:

        execue failed for /etc/X11/X (errno 2)
        _X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 11
        giving up.
        xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
        xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.

Just like the FAQ says, I then downloaded the new Xconfigurator which
runs and reports:

        There is a problem with your X configuration. You may go
        back and modify your configuration or exit now.

The first few times I choose back, then I choose quit. I then tried
to start X and got a fontpath error. I then ftped a copy of
XF86Config.bwg3 and I get the same error. I will be trying a remote
font server after lunch and then kicking and swearing if that fails.
