I have intalled Linux 5.0 I have used Xconfigurator to select my Video card and monitor settings.  when I type startx, my screen goes blank for a second or two then i see little gray x's overlapping one another(which from what I
know is normal so far).  Then it says Caught signal 11. Server aborting. Can't Connect:errno = 111. those are the two error messages that stand out as errors out of everything else on the screen.  I would like very much to get XWindows running.

I am new to unix and until I get xwindows up and going i am still using win95.  and if i can get it to go on my pc i have others willing to put it on theirs they just need to know it will work.
I have the same problem. You should be able to choose size and number of colors. I have the same problem if I use 256 and with 16bit or 24 bit it was gone. There is one problem some of software and games will only work with 256.
