X-window in knoppix has gone after i install ubuntu


my knoppix now playing under command line. How to restore it? Before this happen, i tried to install ubuntu 7.10. When i had install it, my knoppix still alright, but my ubuntu got in problem. I thought it locate on the mount point. So i modified mount point from knoppix, using nano text editor. Here is the code(Where knppoix title more than one, the other one is exactly same with this):

nano boot/grub/menu.lst

title kernel linux 2.6.17
root (hd0,3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17 root=/dev/sda4 ro
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17
safe default
boot

Then i tried to modify like this

title ubuntu
root (hd0,3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17 root=/dev/sda11 ro --> mengikuti yg atas
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17
safe default
boot

(Please explain to me what the meaning...)

i've tried typing "startx" in command line and then appear "/var/rud/xdm.pid not found (kdm not running)
, fatal server error, no screens found", of course i was in root. So, anybody can help me?
