Before you get yourself in the trouble of drivers and other stuff.... For now just forget about it...
At the comman line as root type:
~# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
When you get to the part of the video driver choose 'VESA' !!!!!!
That will get your xserver working for now, and that as a newbie is a big help, from there you can now browse the web for answers within your linux.
For future help in this forums we would need you to paste here your '/var/log/Xfree86.0.log'
If you want to manually edit your config file, the correct one to edit is '/etc/X11/XF86config-4'
