Error messages contain clues, so it's a good idea to post them.

# Configuring X
Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO - video cards
The Linux XFree86 HOWTO
Common X configuring tools:
Redhat 7.3 down - the setup utility leads to several config tools
Redhat 7.3 up - redhat-config-xfree86
You may have these tools:
XF86Setup
XFree86 -configure
Xconfigurator
xf86cfg
xf86config
xconf
ATI Linux drivers
nVidia driver page Most likely, you want the Linux IA32 driver

It sounds as if your video card driver or kernel source code isn't installed or configured correctly.

Good info to post when having x problems are the things that would be involved, such as actual video card and it's memory, the monitor and the mouse, what was attempted, what resulted, etc.

Pretend you were helping someone. What info would you need to know to answer something?
