Incidentally, I tried running startx then sleeping and killing X, and the result is that the mouse cursor goes away, but the screen stays grey.
it says screen :0 added, then discarding screen :1, then it says invalid hieght and width
Maybe the problem is related to me having an ATI Radeon 8500. I had an ATI driver installed under OS X Jaguar, and X11 has worked on Jaguar and continues to work under Panther. I wonder if I need to get an ati driver installed into opendarwin somehow in order for X to work.
Here is the output I had which was very similar, except that I got a black screen covering everything except the cursor and that it happened only if I had an OpenFirmware screen during boot (including with the <alt> key)

The problem is that the monitor resolution it finds is not among the defaults it accepts at first. Try setting it to 1024*768 and see if you can get the server to boot that way. That done, see if you can get the program xf86cfg to run - I don't remember if it's installed by default or if you have to find it somewhere. If you can get the program to run, you can use it to add other accepted resolutions (modelines).
Thanks. I tried:
startx -- -size 640 480 startx -- -refresh 60 -size 640 480 startx -- -refresh 75 -size 1024 768
and they all give results similar to:

Fatal server error: no screens found OsVendorFatalError AbortDDX Quitting XDarwin... X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
Regarding xf86cfg, I read:
In the Darwin specific notes that come with XFree86 4.4.0.
Can I still use xf86cfg?
