Xwindows Installation

I have Linux Slackware 3.3 installed on my K-6 200Mhz, 32Mb ram with an S3Virge video card and am trying to install the xwindows. After I install the XWindows, the gui only works only once. Then when I reboot and run "startx", the system locks up completely; the screen freezes with a lightblue screen and the cursor doesn't move. I have to press crtl+alt+backspace to get out of x and return to the directory prompt. So, what's the problem?

what means "locks up completely"?
Can you switch to another VC via Ctrl-F2 or Ctrl-Alt-F2 ?
Do you get a grdded display with a X-shaped curser?
Can you abort startx with Ctrl-c?

Try running xf86config from the X bin directory.
