xhost on startup

Is it possible to set "xhost +" before you log in? For example in inittab?

I've searched a couple of days now, but don't find an answer. Does somebody has a solution?

What distro are you using?

You should be able to add the command to one of the boot scripts in /etc (preferably boot.local, or whatever is the last boot script to run on your distro).

I'm using Fedora Core 4.

I edited rc.local, but it doesn't do the trick, the xhost access control is still enabled.
