Unhappy RPM help (bad installation)

Ive been given a bad installation on an ibm s390

I need to get Xwindows installed via the rpms on the Suse
inst cd's

when I try startx It give me

"You did not install any X-Server \(e.g. XF86_SVGA\)!
Please install at least one server to start X.
I'm aborting now. "

So I got Xf86.rpm and that has these dependancys

" xdmbgrd is needed by xf86-4.0-77
x_server is needed by xf86-4.0-77 "

no a search through the cd's doesnt reveal anythign nice like
xdmbgrd.rpm or x_server.rpm so i could easily install them.

Is their any way to find these without getting every x* rpma dn installing it (ive install many of the large one and got nothing at the moment).
