I had a similar problem when I installed RH7.1 onto a Gateway laptop recently.
Machine boots fine but when you start X, it all just locked up (actually, I
think I could still log in with ssh, but not on a virtual console).

I can't remember what Steven Hanley eventually did to make it work. I guess
he might be able to help when he returns from his skiing trip. I think it
have been something to do with the keyboard or mouse configuration.
