I can almost remember the command it is something like set display 0:0

What we are trying to do is figure out a problem on our linux server. When it comes up and we issue the command StartX it blows out the display with a beautiful colorful screen that is unreadable. I think the graphics display card on this server is having an issue. SO I want to isolate the graphics card by running startx on a remote client and seeing if the problem still happen even there. I need the command syntax for the set display command.

Any takers? This is a easy one if you on unix daily I used to know this command.

thanks in advance for the rapid response.
