What's the matter is your problem with writing coherent questions.  What
distribution are you using, for one thing?

You can't.  I deduce that you're using Etch (Testing) or Sid (Unstable).  In
those distributions, XFree86 has been REMOVED in favor of Xorg for licensing
reasons.  There are no more current Debian packages of the former.
