x interface not working


i booted my comp today and it came up with the CLI screen instead of going to x window and when i tried to open it it gave me a error and attempted to reconfig settings...stil didnt work

running fedora core 4 on an i686
i dual boot xp so i can download/burn files i might need to use to fix this

is there a way i can install x window from the CLI by either downloading it seperately and burning it onto a cd to run, or by using my installation disks?

Are you sure the X server isn't still installed? What error message do you get when you type in "startx" as a user?

I'm not familiar with Fedora, so I can't answer any installation questions...

Then I think you just need to reconfigure it. You most likely made a change that X server doesn't like.

What error message do you get?
