Unhappy Red Hat 8.0 XIO: fatal error 104

Im new to Linux, since the last couple of weeks.

Ive downloaded the Red Hat 8.0 psyche-i386-disc1.iso, psyche-i386-disc2.iso, and psyche-i386-disc3.iso.
and of course the disc 4+5, (but I didnt use them yet)
I did everything as described in the manuals, like creating the needed partitions (next to WinXP).
The problems came after the installation.
After the startx command I got the next error:

Server Crash:
XIO: fatal error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server
':0.0' after 0 request (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining

The first time I installed RH8 with graphic login screen....When I did this, I saw before login a scrambled (login) screen, after a few enters given, I got the text login. (So i guess theres a problem).
With the second installation I selected the text login....
...But I got the same error after login

Can someone help me....

run Xconfigurator

it should be able to setup the right settings for your hardware

also see /var/log/XFree86.0.log for more details on the error
