  I recently installed Linux Slackware and
X-Windows. For some reason X-Windows do not run. When I
enter startx or xinit commant it sais Fatal Error, there is no configuration file. I heard of XF86Config program which helps to setup XFree86 there is only one file on my HD named XF86Config.eg and it is not executable. I tried to  change it and make it executable. Executing this file doesn't solve anything.
 Please help me, how do make X-Windows work???

XF86Config isn't a program, it's just a configuration file.
What you have to do is edit XF86Config.eg and rename it XF86Config (don't make it executable).

XF86Config.eg has some instructions inside on how to edit the various sections to configure your mouse, and other devices.  In particular, you will need to configure your video equipment.  This requires detailed information about your video card and monitor (which should be available from their user manuals).
