Well for one thing, if you are ever going to install any Debian packages
whatsoever, I would recommend using either dselect, or in a case where
you don't have net access, or a local distribution media, go to the
debian web page and get the packages from their package section (which
sad to say has been down lately).  The reason for this is that it will
automatically tell you what other packages you will need for the install
(dependencies).

Now on to the meat... if you have everything installed, you might try
running as root...

/usr/sbin/xbase-configure

and then ...

/usr/bin/X11/xf86config

Be sure to read the instructions in xf86config carefully, as most
problems with X come from incorrect values specified for monitor
capabilities and card types.
