Lets not forget about the graphical /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86Setup.  It's a little
less intimidating to new users, (me thinks).

Hello Alfred-What the error message is telling you is that you have not
configured the X server-You can do this configuration by going to
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11 and invoking xf86config-You can follow the script
as you go through the configuration routine-I am assuming that you have
installed all of the X files and also have installed a window manager
such as fvwm or any one you like-Also BE CAREFUL!! You will need to
know both horizontal and virtical sync frequencies for you moniter-
You should be able to get these from the manual that came with your
moniter. The hanbook in /usr/share/docs is also an excellant place
to get information on getting up and running X-Hope this will help
and good luck (BTW-In general the man pages and the doc files are
excellant sources of info about X and the system in general)
