You need to check that you have X installed with Fedora core
there are 3 packages that you could have installed X , Gnome
, KDE
any of these should have installed X for you which leads me
to believe that X is not installed if you do a 
which startx 

it should report back a path

[stephen@captamerica ~]$ which startx
/usr/X11R6/bin/startx
[stephen@captamerica ~]$ 


something like that

if not then you need to install it. 

You can do a 
yum groupinstall  "GNOME Software Development"

or replace the GNOME part with "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"

Maybe that will work as im using the commands on a different
RH disto
