I've posted my question on http://lists.apple.com/archives/x11-users/2010/Feb/index.html. I can't open X11 when home folder is located at '/Volumes/Michael's Home/Users/Michael'. The problem seems to be my use of single quote "'" and spaces " " in my pathname, especially on my home directory.
My problem has been solved by: (1) rename my HD to 'Michaels_Home' under 'Get Info' from Finder (I can't rename in Disk Utility though) (2) press return (enter) (3) change my home folder path to the '/Volumes/Michaels_Home/Users/Michael' (http://eshop.macsales.com/Reviews/Framework.cfm?page=Tips/relocate3/relocate3.html) (4) restart (5) log in and open X11 (6) problem solved
Hope X11 will support the directory like something as 'Volumes/Michael's Home/Users/Michael/' in the future.
