X Sever crash after xset.tgz & vg16.tgz install

Install Slackware 9.0 one week,screw up X the following.I had just installed xset.tgz and xvg16.tgz packages to try out XF86Setup (I should have stuck to the command line),rebooted and now I can not start X.I get this error message just after “Starting X Session Manager”: I can not start the X Server-Could not find config file-tried //XF86Config-/etc/XF86Config-/usr/X11R6/lib/XF86Config.clear-/usr/X11R6/lib/XF86Config.
Fatal Server error-no config file found.
Carried on and eventually got into XF86Setup.Manged to configure mouse and keyboard,but card,monitor,Modeselsction and other gave us this error.
Error:bad index””:must be interger or”end”-a copy of the stack trace has been saved in the file

I start Slackware using a boot floppy,which in turn runs Lilo and I get the option of Win98 or Slackware,(a little bit odd but that's how it is).On the same HD I have Suse 8.2 and Mandrake 9.1,both booting from Lilo floppies.I made a rescuse.dsk from the supplemental cd that I got when I bought the Slackware 9.0 cd.Tried mounting it at the Lilo boot promt (mount /dev/fd0),but all I get is no image found.Well here's hoping some kind soul will walk me through this stuff up.
