bash root# X -probeonly 2>&1 /tmp/probe.log
at least i'd like to see the output of it..

startx usually does not start because:
	- wrong X server ( /usr/X11R6/bin/X* )
	- wrong modes ( 1024x768 or less  or higher )
	- wrong monitor spec ( HoriSync and VertRefresh ) see spec from your monitor
	- wrong video memory ( wierd output )
	- other wacky config issues ??
