and if you read the linux from scratch book, it should point you to the beyond linux from scratch project where you can add all the stuff to make your text based system into a fully fledged one.

that project has a average system (its not basic, but it ain't advanced either), anyway XFree86 is a X implantation that has more then necessary things you'll need for a running X server, it includes all the programs, color database, etc.... so id take that, unless you want something harder to use.. in that case use google and find out about X11 servers for linux
