An xterm system.xinitrc means configuring your system.xinitrc (perhaps found in /etc/X11/xinit/system.xinitrc) to start a simple window manager like uwm and pop up a single xterm. It is loved for its simplicity. More advanced setups might use twm and pop up an xclock as well; even fancier setups might invoke xman.
