What kind of video card do you have? I had the same problem with
no display and having to reboot. I have a Trident 9680 card and, thanks to
George Bonser, had to change the setup ins X11Setup. In the card
selection, I had to set the "options" to noaccel to get my system to work.
Don't ask me why, but it is working fine after I made that one change.
I don't know if this is the same problem, but it is worth a try.
Let me know if this helps...
