What does your .xinitrc look like?

If you are running version 4+, then I would run the command line configuration:

# XFree86 -configure (as root)

test it:

# XFree86 -xf86config ~/

and if that is ok, then make it the system XF86Config file (where ever that is in RH; in FreeBSD,
it is in /etc/X11/)

Also, I am not sure if setting the system up to go into the graphical login is the same as in
FreeBSD, but I would highly suggest you boot into the regular old text prompt and run "startx"
when you wanted to GUI.
