I fried my X server

I was trying to install the X includes, but through the precess it stopped and then I rebooted the computer and it couldn't run X. I installed the library again, but now I get another error about not finding a host name. Should I just reinstall my operating system or is there a way to fix this?

if you dont need to save what on the PC, a reload would take much less time

i believe there is a program on winblows that allows you to access the linux partition and move it over to the windows partition, the name slipped my mind. Just a suggestion if you have to backup a large amount for reformatting
