Installing X

Hi again,

I have a RH 7.1 box that I did not install X on due to memory limitations 
at the time. Since I now have more memory, I'd like to run X. So I 
installed the binary distribution of XFree86 4.2.0. But it won't startup w/ 
the usual startx. I can briefly see something on the screen, but after a 
couple of seconds the monitor goes into standby mode. I haven't had a 
chance to try older versions yet.

Is there a way I can run the RH install utility and install JUST X? The 
system is running successfully, so I don't want to upgrade or reinstall.
