Thanks again for the tip.  I looked at XFree86.0.log, and i got a few 
warnings. It turns out that I am in run level 3, thanks for that help, it 
saves A LOT of time.  I know that my screen and video card works, I am on

(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)

(WW) System lacks support for changing MTRRs

(WW) I810(0): xf86AllocateGARTMemory: allocation of 1024 pages failed
        (Cannot allocate memory)
