Fatal server error: no screens found
The install completed, I set up my user name now when I run startx I get the :Fatal server error: no screens found.

I am so lost at this point.
I have looked up the message in Google and it sais it is a very generic message and to check the log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log"
Which I have no clue how to check.
Does anyone know the best logical steo to take to get th GUI up and running.

More info, better answers. Distribution? Video card?

# Configuring X
Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO - video cards
The Linux XFree86 HOWTO
Configuring XFree86 for a Non-Specific Linux Distribution
Common X configuring tools:
Debian - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
Mandrake - XFdrake
Redhat 7.3 down - the setup utility leads to several config tools
Redhat 7.3 up - redhat-config-xfree86
You may have these tools:
XFree86 -configure
ATI Linux drivers
If you need the nVidia driver, you want the Linux IA32 driver
