I am encountering the following problem when I type X or startx at the command prompt after logging in.
_XSERVTransSocketINETCreatListener:...SocketCreateListener() failed
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running
Fatal server error:
Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running
When reporting a problem related to a server crash, please send the full server output, not just the last messages
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

I would really appreciate any help on this matter. I have installed linux red hat 6.0 on ibm 380z laptop.

Gracias :-)
Thanks, vannakam, dhanyavad

Yeah like the other reply about Xconfigurator, you need to reconfigure X using it.
