I suspect this has been asked several times as it's happened to me a couple of times, but I didn't see the solution in the archives. I have RH RC2 installed on an old Compaq 800 ProLiant. After the machine was built, I moved it to a rack with a KVM and a different monitor installed. I could tell the GUI keeps trying to load but fails. I suspect the machine doesn't recognize the monitor. I tried
to change /etc/X11/XF86config, but it hasn't helped at this point. Do I need to try something else, or should this file be the
culprit? Thanks - Allyn

Have you tried running this?
 dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

That will take you through the original install setup questions for X,
then generate a new XF86config file.

You might want to back up the original one before doing this.

NB: This is just a guess. No promises this will fix your problem..
