After I install Red Hat 6.1 I try to run X Windows (with startx as my friend told me).
Only thing I run is a bunch of messages:

execve failed for /etc/X11/X (errno 2)
X11TransSockedUNIX Connect: Can't connect: errno = 111 giving up
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111) : unable to connect to x server
xinit : No such process (errno3):server errno

Please help me.I am only starting with Linux and I wouldn't like that already first step distract me from learning Linux.

My e-mail is:

It sounds like your installation didn't get it quite right. Here's a brief explanation of one possible source of the problem. The upshot is that you should run the X configuration utility (Xconfigurator) to try to correct the error.
