Trouble starting kde

Hi all,

Well Ive just install Slackware 9, and this is probably a bit of a n00b question, but when I go to start x, it comes back with a fatal error.

Fatal sevrer error:
no screens found

is the message I get. Is this because I stuffed the configuration up?

You'll need to configure for X first. Have a go at 'xf86cfg' and see if that can walk you through it.
