I have installed Linux on my Old Compaq PC on a 1GB partition and all seems to be working fine..!!. However I am having trouble starting the X server to get open windows etc on my screen. I just can't do with command line stuff. I have used the checklists and followed the procedure step by step to get the x server working. And all it comes back with is "This is not a binary file" Am I doing something stupid.
PS I am a complete beginner to Linux and last used Unix 5 years
