"No such file or directory" when starting tinyX


Hi,
I just installed tiny X and am trying to start it with "startx".

However, none or the programs in my /usr/X11R6/bin will let me run them, I get:

"No such file or directory"

for every program. I have put this directory into my PATH variable, and here is a listing
of "ls -l"
[roland@localhost bin]$ ls -l

The files all show they are executable, any ideas?
Thanks!

By the way, I was logged in as root when I tried to run them. It seems like a permissions problem or something, but I can't tell.
