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.
