Good for you, but the original poster was asking about Red Hat.
Debian and Red Hat start X differently. I was quite careful to
mention that distros vary in the original email.

Because the question was about Red Hat and on Red Hat there is a
tool to do it for you. Further, whilst RH will recognise and use 
~/.xinitrc if there, it prefers ~/.Xclients as far as I know.

Finally, there is one more trick which avoids any of this. Apparently
you can tell grub (default boot-loader for RH and Fedora; I am not
sure this is the case on Debian) "3" or "5" and get it to boot to 
that run-level. You can even set it up to offer you the choice.
