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.

Originally posted by g-string 3 i have found a .xinitrc but the apps which evidently are loaded on startup are not signed in this file. Instead ther is alink to the Xsession file but I do not understand what this file do.
With the help of a friend I tried rcconfig and this works for some things (like disabling the GDM startup manager).
But I still do not know how to change the startup apps on my system
The apps file is located in your ~/.fluxbox directory, however if you aren't using a 0.9x version of fluxbox, you won't find it. The apps file was added to the development version of fluxbox.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
any file linked to from .xinitrc would run whatever apps are in that file. in your case, apps in Xsession would run. unless that is just a settings file. i can't remember when i've seen seen that or what it was.
startup files on your system are seperate from startup apps for X. depending on your distribution, they may be in /etc/rc.d/. if kde is on your system, you can run ksysv.
