X not working because of update from 4.3 to 4.4 RC3

Installed XFree 4.4 RC3 on Mdk 9.2 and lost video mode

So I tried to install XFree 4.4 RC· cuz I've been said that it has DRI support for my gfx Sis 630, so I downloaded all th files that I thought it need (in the Xfree site they don't say what files to download, so I downloaded almost all that were non repeated in the download directory for 4.4) and i make sh, I think I trusted to much in the installation because I make it overwrite all the configuration files, and now when I try to boot linux it can't start the x server and I get errors but when I'm in text mode I type startx and I get the errors but it loads a graphic interface with many consoles on it but of course it it's far different from what I had before and I can't load any of the apps that have GUI. Is anybody having the same trouble? Any advice on this would be great I'm a total nwbie
so step-by-step would be nice.

Here is a list of the errors I get:

_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/200:0
_XSERVTransMake AllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6
/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/video/sis/sisfb.o.gz : init_module: no such device
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/video/sis/sisfb.o.gz failed
modprobe: insmod sis failed.
[drm] failed to load kernel module "sis"
(EE) SIS(0): [dri] DRI Init failed. Disabling DRI
warning: Cannot convert string "" to type XftFont.
waiting for X server to shut down X connection to :0.= broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

xterm: fatal IO error 32 (Broken pipe) or KillClient on X server ":0.0"

Xauth: (argv):1: bad diplay name "200:0" in remove command

insmod sisfd

tehn try, also, you mgiht want to reconcirder installing v4.4 sence when you instll it itll pretty much make it so every program you have to run under X is in violation of the leicnce (scary i think, and i thought linux was free of stupid liecenses)
