	1. 1FA after boot.
I do not remember the exact meaning of this code but I believe it boils down 
to setting and running lilo correctly. You might boot from floppy and send 
your /etc/lilo.conf to the list, or take a look at the lilo docs.
BTW: You might also want to try loadlin - it will let you boot from HD from 

	2. X configuration
Once again, might be a configuration problem. You might try 
	startx 2>&1 > startx.msg
This will let you see the Xserver output when it was started. Here too you 
might send the output to the list.
