Xserver and mozilla not working for 11g Oracle AMI

Currently Being Moderated

I have successfully launched an 11g Oracle DB AMI ( - 32 bit). I also associated a static IP (using Amazon EC2).There are two issues that i see so far that prevents me from working on the machine like a true oracle server.

1) But i cannot get xserver working. I need this for downloading and installing oracle software using OUI.
2) I also want to access internet from my instance by launcing mozilla. Even this one does not work.

*$ cd /usr/bin*
*$ ./X*

Same issue with "startx" command. It shows the X Server Configuration+ in the menu, but no action performed when I click on it.
