Um, boot the system? Are you trying to say that when you boot X will not start? If so, the error will be logged in /var/log/X*.0.log.

You do know that Redhat 9 will be 6 releases backlevel in October, right? Any reason you are using such an old release?

When you install Redhat 9, it boots into X normally. If it is not doing that, you have either customized the installation, or X is having a problem starting.

The startx command will help only if you have manually configured the system to boot without X (by editing /etc/inittab). If you have not done this, then you need to look for the error in the log file that will explain why X will not start.

There's no manual configuration needed. Issue the command startx; if X starts then you are configured to start without X for some reason when the system boots. If X doesn't start when you use the startx command, then you need to look at the log file to see why. It's not that complicated.
