    Question xserver fails to load

    Hi everyone,
    I am very new to linux. I have a Intel 845 MB with P4 2GHZ processor, 512MB RAM with 80GB HDD. I was using fedora core 2 and XP a dual boot, it was working fine. Last week I downloaded Fedora Core 6 from a mirror site and upgraded my Fedora core2 to the new Core6. I was Unable to load fedora after that I got an error Kernal Error and the system just stays there. So, I deleted all the linux partition and loaded a fresh copy of Fedora 6. Unfortunately I lost the dual boot. But the fedora was working fine. I reinstalled agian. I got the dualboot, But the Xserver fails to load. I searched few forums and changed the driver from i386 to vesa in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and did startx I got the following error


    X10 : fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 Known precessed) with 0 events remaining.

    Plz help in resolvin this I know I can get the xserver back if I reinstall the o.s. But I think there should be some other way out since it is Linux. Plz guide my step by step.

    Thanks in Advance,

    have you tried system-config-display?

    That error generally indicates that the Xserver failed to initialise
