Hmm, I just did an "apt-cache search xserver-xfree86" and didn't see any packages that match the deb name you use above. Perhaps you're pulling from a non-Debian repository, and their packages are broken?

Hi all,
I used dpkg -X xserver-xfree86 to install the files for X to run BUT
xserver-xfree86 is still not in the status database. It exits with a
error #64.  And I can not install x-window-system and x-window-system-core.
Does anyone know where I can get complete info about this apt/dpkg error
short of reading source code!

Ahhh. dpkg is used to install single packages, and doesn't take care of dependencies. You want to use a front-end for dpkg, such as apt-get or aptitude. Try "apt-get install x-window-system".
