Depends which version of xbase you have installed. The latest versions 
are configured through the file /etc/X11/config; if you want to start xdm 
at boot time, put the line 'start-xdm' in this file. If you want xdm to 
start an X server, put the line 'xdm-start-server' in this file. (This 
feature is new with xbase-3.1.2-9; previously you had to insert the line
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X
into the file /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers by hand.)
