XIO: Fatal IO error 104


I'm trying to install Red Hat enterprise 5 as a virtual machine on Windows XP as a Host.

But after finishing the installation it keeps telling me that it couldn't configure the X server,I don't know why?

I logged to the system using the Root and when I typed startx and error just showed up
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining?!!!

Please help me??!! I need it for my graduation project!!!!

No offense meant, but have you TRIED googling this?
I got about ~530 hits for "XIO: fatal IO error 104" (used
as an exact phrase). Surely if this is important to you
you could do some searching yourself?
