Zenwalk X Server problem..

All right, I have Zenwalk Linux installed (the latest version). It installed nice and fine, so I boot it up, and I get this error that says "Failed to start X Server..." and sends me back to the splash screen (verbose)

I'm pretty sure that problem isn't uncommon at all..

I've been told to go into the terminal or something, but I'll need help on that because I type stuff at the verbose startup, and nothing happens

here is what I see

this is after scrolling all the way down
