I suggest you to read the log in /var/log/XFree86.0.log to see
why the X server fails to run.

I advise you to read Neal's installation guide too. Look at

Virtual consoles are implemented in the new Marcus' console system,
Look at http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2002/debian-hurd-200209/msg00054.html
But marcus' console is new, and doesn't interact well with X at the moment.
