Diamond Viper/Micron monitor

I just installed RH 5.0 and have been trying to configure the X windowing
system with both configX and Xconfigurator but have had no luck.  I get
the following messages:

xinit:  No such file or directory (errno2):  No server "X" in PATH
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno: 111 giving up.

My video card is the Diamond Viper V330 AGP 4 MB with the nVidia Riva 128
graphics accelerator.  And my monitor is a Micron 500 FGx 15" 1280x1024
max res with 30-64kHz horizontal and 50-120Hz vertical frequencies.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like you didn't install the X server.  Here is what I have
in /usr/X11R6/bin:

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            9 Aug 30  1998 X -> XF86_SVGA*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root      3179231 Dec 30 20:45 XF86_SVGA*

Do you have those files?  If not, download and install the appropriate
PRMs.  If you haven't already, you should get the latest XFree86
3.3.3.1 RPMs anyway.  That version should work fine with your card,
unlike whatever came with Red Hat 5.0.

I don't know about RedHat, but I installed a fairly old version of Slackware
that came with a book I purchased, and Xwindows seems to work just fine (if
you like 320x240 resolution).  Supposedly support is better in the more
recent versions of X, so you may want to try a newer server... or not use
metroX, which you may be-- I don't know much about RH.

The above is all with regards to a similar setup (I have a Diamond Viper V330
PCI 4MB [I think] with a Micron 700FGx 17" monitor).
