Try running Xconfigurator. If the link is broken that should fix it. Else get the RPMs and just install. You can use Xconfigurator itself again to configure it.
--Sarin
Also try "which X" to see if it is in your path. And then go to /usr/X11R6/bin and do a " ls X* ". You should see the installed servers along with some other software then.

First find out if you have X installed.
For an rpm-based distro run:
rpm -q -a|grep XFree
If you get an result (packages printed) you should have X installed. The problem may be that you don't have all the packages. Look for something like XFree86-SVGA (on your installation cd) and try to install it (rpm -i packagename).
If still in trouble write which distro you use (and if it's rpm-based, copy the result of rpm -q -a|grep XFree).
