It'd be nice to know if it says what the problem is. Chances
are, it's something simple (like not having the Xserver be SUID). Try
catching the stderr of startx.
In csh, this is done with 'startx >& filename'.
In sh, it's done with 'startx 2>&1 filename' (I think - I don't
use Bourne much).
Thee output from that will catch most configuration problems, and
may help identify problems that aren't local.
