Question X server, fatal warning..... full report, what do I do?


Hello all,
Just gone through XF86config for the first time in an attempt to correct some problems on my computer, I tried "startx" and I got this....
_______________________________________________________________
FONT=courier new]Using authority file //.Xauthority
Writing authority file //.Xauthority
Using authority file //.Xauthority
Writing authority file //.Xauthority

X: warning; process set to priority -11 instead of requested priority -10

Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again[/FONT]
_______________________________________________________________
I don't know how to remove that file, I know that the . signifies hidden but I don't know the command to remove it! I haven't restarted since doing the XF86config do I need to?

Doing this all out of Knoppix by the way.....

Any suggestions and help is much appreciated, Many thanks,

George~Youth2000
