Angry VNC screwed up my xfce X window


Hello all,

I recently installed a VNC server on my Gentoo Linux system.
The problem I am having is this:
Now when I got to launch X Windows via 'startx or startxfce' commands it does this.. "/usr/bin/startxfce: Starting X server


waiting for X server to begin accepting connectiosn."


How do I change it back so that when I want to get to X windows like xfce it runs that instead of this VNC server stuff????
Right now I can not get into X windows unless I manually run ./XFree86 or something then its just the "X". I cant get xfce to run manually because then it tells me this.
" Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:"

I just want to get back into X windows!
Anyone have any idea or know how to fix?

thanks,
Sam
