xfs startup?

can you throw xfs into the xinit to auto start it on X launch?  I
often start X from the command line, do to problems with either GDM
or X on my system.  

(for those who are interested to help):
Dual PPro 166 w/12MB of memory, Tyan motherboard.
S3 Trio3D video card (I know, lousy support, but it's what I
currently have)
X 3.3.5
October GNOME w/Helix update as of 29 April
PowerDisplay20 monitor

When I start X from the command line, no problems (configured for
1280x1024, 16 bit color default)
When I use RL 5, I get a flickering screen, with the monitor trying to
come up, but not working.
