it boots up. but no xwindows.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

anyway of fixing this ?

When I got this error, I typed xconf at the prompt and it automatically configured my video settings. Then it should say, use startx again.

(This from a Linux virgin who's just had loads of probs.) But I'm getting there!
