you shouldn't see it for very long if at all, if there is no xsetroot in your xinit script, then it will take longer to load the window manager default, try man xsetroot, it should give you the answer...
i have already tried all that before. i run init 4 so startx runs automaticaly anyway, and the xsetroot in my xinitrc just changes the colour a couple of seconds after the gray screen appears so... it is still there
thanks again guys, i guess the gray screen will keep coming up everytime i boot as a reminder that i still have no idea of what i'm doing
