Ok, have you set your graphics card and monitor correctly? Could you tell us what graphics adapter/chip, monitor and mouse you have? Then we might have an easier time helping you get the right settings.

when I type "startx" the following info is generated

this is a pre-release version of XFree86 and is not supported in any way

 then some bla bla bla.... and

(WW) no matching device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:0) found
(EE) no devices detected

Fatal Server Error:
no screens found

That means that you have chosen the wrong graphics adapter in XFdrake, so you need to determin what you do have. A help there is the output from
lspci -v
or
lspcidrake
