Here is an alternate method for finding the X11 installation package.
1. Insert Mac OS X Tiger installation DVD disk 1 into your Mac.
2. Use Spotlight to search for a file named X11User.pkg. It is
typically in /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/
3. Once located, click on this package to start the installation
This information is from page 203 in the book "Learning Unix for Mac
OS X Tiger" by Dave Taylor. This book is a very good guide to using
the Darwin version of UNIX that comes with OS X. This book is
excellent for beginners, is published by O'Reilly and costs $19.95.

You findX11on the System DVD that came with your Mac. It's pretty well
hidden. When you mount the DVD, you see a window with the contents of
the DVD. Until your attention is drawn to it, you might not notice the
vertical scroll bar. Scroll down, and you should see a package icon
labeled something like Additional Software. If you click on that, you'll
get a standard installer and you can explore the custom options to findX11.
