    Mabey I don't have the requirements. I have 48 megs of ram, one 4gb hd (linux on it), 1.2gb hd, 850meg hd, and a 200MHz Processor.

    Could this be my problem?

    That shouldn't prevent from at least starting the X server, at least not without an error message. What did you mean that it did when it was "working"? Ie. what does "working" mean?

    When I use the word 'working' I ment it was axcessing the hardrive (when the hdd light on the case blinks).

    Mabey I should just go with Lycoris instead?

    I'm having troubles believing this... The X server must say something when you start it, doesn't it? It should at the very least print out its version number and similar info. If it truly doesn't say anything, please post the output of the following commands:
    Code:
    ls -l /etc/X11/X /usr/X11R6/bin/X
    free
    X -version

    I have to say, this is really weird. Does anyone have an idea?

    I dunno if this will work, but if you feel up to it, you can try it:
    Code:
    rm /usr/X11R6/bin/X
    ln -s XFree86 /usr/X11R6/bin/X
    chmod 4755 /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86

    I think my computer just died. I think it might be the video card, tried two others but they would not fit. I tried two monitors, still nothing. Thanks for the help Slip, Hellmasker, and especialy Dolda2000. I'll try to get another computer.
