Simple:

As root:
Change initdefault (int /etc/inittab) to 3. (No X).
Then edit rc.local and add "su -c 'xinit'"

Now, as user X, create a new file /home/X/.xinitrc and add something
like that.

# You need a simple Window manager. MWM in this case.
mwm & 
# Client application.
client_software &
# Add a screen saver just in-case.
xscreensaver &
