Hi!

I made a ftp-instllation (RedHat 4.1) And It seems that I'm missing a file. When I try to run startx I get som messages about can't find XF86Config. Do I have to reinstall Linux or how can I solve the problem?

Did you configure x-windows? You can either do it manually by makeing editing an example XF86Config file or automatically by running xconfigurator(I think) or another x config program. Look under /usr/X11/bin they should under there.  I think there is another one called xconfig.
The XF86Config file should exist under /etc/X11/ I think.
(not running linux at this second, so I can't check these things)
BTW the XF86Config is the x-windows server configuration file. It has the video card and monitor information in it.
