Xwindows Not Working ARGH!!!!!!!!!

Hi, I just tryed to put debian in my computer and I followed the manueal supplied on there website very thouroghly so after everything was installed and I my hopes all up

I reboot crossing me fingers to only see as debian trys to get into xwindows a black screen flahes a few times and brings me back to the console me being furious after a long tiring install went and posted in debian forum with no much luck one person told me to try configuring x by using

dpk-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
as root

But thats just confusing can someone guide me through it.
