    I have X11 installed, and I prefer xterm to the terminal program that comes with leopard. I also like my xterm to have a black background and white letters, which requires you to run the command with two arguments (xterm -fg white -bg black). I have a link to xterm in my Dock but I can't figure out for the life of me how to specify those arguments so when I click it my colors are the way I want. Anyone know?

    Thanks in advance!

    You could try making a shell script or AppleScript application and putting that in your Dock. I don't believe it's possible to run an application with specific arguments directly from the Dock.
