Um I'm not real sure what your asking, your xserver configuration file is (in most systems) in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

You need to give more info as to what your needing and what linux distro. you are using. If your using Slackware, slackware by default boots you into runlevel 3, to start xserver just type startx

i am using DSL linux and i have downloaded the kernel 2.4.31
In inittab file, the default runlevel is set to 5. So the display mode is GUI. My question is from where the GUI setup is getting loaded?
The reason is , want to load elf file which is having a user interface.(ie. instead of loading the default GUI). is it possible.

first, please be patient. At 3 AM PST, a significant percentage of American continent is asleep, and Europe is at work. This leaves east Asia and cruise ships in the Atlantic........

Look in /etc/rc5.d for links to the scripts that get run for runlevel 5. You'll find one that has "dm" in it. This starts the display manager. (Or leads you to something that does)

In /etc/rc5.d , 4 links to the shell scripts which are in /etc/init.d. I am not to able to find it out.
