>From a terminal window command line xbiff -geometry 50x50-5+5 & puts
it in my upper right corner, but if I put that in my .xinitrc 
(and chmod 755 ~/.xinitrc) nothing happens. Are you using kdm window 
manager or xdm ? (I have in my /etc/ttys: 
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm -nodeamon" xterm on secure)

Would .xinitrc not be processed by kdm window manager?
