I'm actually having a similar problem on a Toshiba Satellite 205CDS it's a P166 16Mb ram with a 800mb HDD.
I'm booting using a floppy.
The thing is I manage to run DSL in text mode using "fb800x600 2 vga=788 mem=16m".
However at startup the system tries to create a bunch of files, directories (the srceen keeps scrolling very fast, I manged only to read they have something to do with icons, and such), unsuccesfully. In each case there is some kind of error. It says among others "error -2". Then it jums to runlevel 5. And shows me the same message:
"xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server.
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error."
I though it had something to do with my Hard Drive. I formated it in a number of ways (FAT16, FAT32, and linux type partitions ext2 I think...), with and without swaps... No effect.
