Question Fluxbox install on Redhat 9.0

I had downloaded the fluxbox-0.1.14.tar.gz and tried to install it.
after I wrote ./configure
I received following error:

checking for t_open in -lnsl... no
checking for socket in -lsocket... no
checking for X... no
configure: error: Fluxbox requires the X Window System libraries and headers.

thanks for your help

just get a fluxbox binary install rpm, and make sure you already have X installed and its libraries/fonts.
