No X on new install

Yup! That's my first issue. The machine is a Compaq Presario 700US on
which I did an ftp install from debian.org using the idepci floppy set.
I was a little surprised that the online installation guide doesn't take
you through X-setup, I'd have thought that deserves a chapter all its
own. Oh well....
During package download, I simply used tasksel, and selected just about
everything except the "Jr." package, Fortran, and the server stuff;
which I skipped. I went through the various configuration dialogs
(network, etc.) but there was nothing about X.
Now that the machine's booted, I can find the various X11 directories,
and they're mostly populated, but one thing I have not found is the X
server itself. Where's the executable? What's its name? I wonder if I
missed a package...?
...thanks for any thoughts...
