Fluxbox/aterm question


I'm using fluxbox as my window manager, and I have aborderless aterm set to start when fluxbox starts. What I would like to do is have a second aterm load at startup, but in a different possition on the screen. Anybody know if thats possible/how it's done?

There is a penetration testing / forensics bootable cd linux distro named F.I.R.E. that does just what you want. It loads 4 aterms cascaded and in diff colors.

Your not going to tell us what it is? For the record its the -g switch. Something like:

aterm -g 179x25+0+0

-g width x height + x coordinate + y coordinate
