Question Screen(s) found, but none have a usable

I got an Error Report in the file called "xfree86.0.log"

when I want to enter into the red hat linux GUI mode with the

command 'startx'

It says "Screen(s) found, but none have a usable

configuration.Fatal server error:no screens found .When

reporting a problem related to a server crash, please send

the full server output,not just the last messages.This can be

found in the log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log".Please report

problems to"

I copy "/var/log/XFree86.0.log" to D:\xfree86.0.log(/dev/hda5),

but when I open it with notebook in windows ,it show me a mess.

My problem is :how can I report this message to And what's the problem

with the 'startx'?
