When I, after setup, try to start Xwindows with "startx" I'll get:
_X11TransSocketUnixConnect : Can't connect : Errno = 111

Why? I'm new to Linux and cant find any information on the error..

My gut reaction is that the correct server for your card
isn't being used.  You don't mention it but I'll assume you're
using XFree86.  You also don't mention your card.  My card is a STB Velocity 3D.  It has a ViRGE VX chip so I'll use that card's
server's name below (I added notes indicating where it may
be different for your card).

First thing to do would be to check the docs that came with your
variation of X to make sure that your card is supported by that
variation of X.  This doc should also tell you which X server
to use with your card.  

Check to see if there is a link between /usr/X11R6/bin/X and
the correct server for your card:

   cd /usr/X11R6
   ls -lF

You should see near the top of the directory something that looks like:

   X -> /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_S3V

The XF86_S3V is the server for my card.  Yours should be set
to the server for your card (all of the available servers are in
/usr/X11R6/bin).

If it is not there or if it's set to the wrong server:

   rm /usr/X11R6/bin/X

To delete the existing link.  

Then to set the link to the appropriate server:

   ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_SGVA  /usr/X11R6/bin/X

Change XF86_S3V to the name of the server required for your
video card.

I hope this helps.
