The tilde is simply an easier way to universally describe a $HOME directory. You can edit your $HOME directory to anywhere you want by editing a specific file in your /etc directory, so simply saying /home/username is not even close to ALWAYS correct. Generically speaking is much easier, thus the use of the tilde (~) as a meaning of "The current users home directory". Such as the example before: IF you've got a user named bob, his home directory (~) is /home/bob And if you are anywhere on your system and as that user type cd ~ it will change to the user's home directory.

As for XSession, it's located in /etc/X11 However, be very weary of editing this file too often and without good instructions.

Cool

ok .. I got it, but I always wonder why ASCII code doesn't work. I've got italian keyboard so I can't use directly some kind of brackets ... I would type them by their ASCII code. but I can't

however ... I can't find the XSession file nor in /etc/X11 nor in /home/manub/xsession (as lineakd readme said)

Shooting some blanks tonight aren't we RH 8 might have then setup differently. You may want to check around on their website (or search around here and some other forums/ www.google.com/linux ) and see if there is any explaination of where this file may reside. They changed alot around when they put out 8. Another option is to:
updatedb (as root)
locate Xsession (remember though, linux is case sensitive)

Cool
