command line be gone!!!

I am running Slackware with the umsdos setup, and I am trying to set up xfree86.  I ran the config file, and it says to type "X" to run it...I type"X" and all I get is this greyish background with an x shaped mouse pointer.  I can't do anything from this point, I tried all kinds of keys, I can't change login's, and all I can do is ctrl-alt-del to kill it.  any ideas on what I can do to rescue this and make it useable...and then to run fvwm95?

To start X Windows, you usually use  startx  not  X. X itself needs a couple of parameters.
