try to boot in single user mode, disable gdm (or kdm) and have a look at
the Xserver log files. if 'startx' works from console, gdm should work
fine as well... To disable gdm is usually enough to put exit 1 in the
gdm startup script in /etc/init.d/gdm (I don't remember if this is the
default rh location ... but look for something similar...)
