Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You can also define whole new directory configuration, like is /etc/X11. In xinit command arguments before "--" are for X client configuration (where you specified that should be xbmc), and after it about X server configuration (which by default is Xorg). You can read "man Xorg" for information and accessible options for your Xserver.
This file is for configuration of XServer, you very likely don't need this option if you have no created it yourself. X will use default file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf if exists. If you want to just start xbmc in other console use command from post #4. If this is not what you want, then can you specify more your question?
Well, I made this as service in /etc/init, I don't known if this is used in your distribution, but you can check also /etc/rc.local or other /etc/rc?.d directories, probably you need to add "&" at end to run it in background.
