The exact error "smth" could be interesting

Maybe you need to set-up your graphics-card first. Try to login as root and type 'sax2', configure, save, change to the user account and try 'startx' again.

Not sure if I understand. Didn't you mention above that you logged in and ran startx? What I suggested has to be run from console (runlevel 3). To get into runlevel 3, you can type a '3' on the grub menu, before you load the kernel.
