Have Firefox Launch X on startup


I just installed Firefox successfully on Slackware 10.1(Pentium 2/400 256MB ram) I want to launch firefox from a shell script while X is not running. However, I will get a cannot open display message. Is there anyway to configure slackware or GTK+ or firefox to launch X when I run it
