I want to install modular X from scratch (no previous monolithic install). Is that possible? Will I have problems installing desktop environments and other X apps?

rogerdv,

Thats no problem. Start with this guide but skip the bit at the beginning, which removes the monolithic X, since you don't have it.
Start with Second step: Installing modular Xbelow code listing 2.3

If you run a testing system, as opposed to a stable system, modular X is already unmasked for you.

I have modular X with the nVidia binary driver, GNOME, OOo ... no problems here.
