in your earlier post you said you tried apt-get svga but it didn't work.
what specifically didn't work, did apt-get fail to find the package or
did the package you download not work under X?
if it was the former, the name of the package is xserver-svga, you might
try that with apt-get install.
if that wasn't it, give us some more details on what exactly you tried
and what type of error messages you get. the list is most helpful when
you provide good clues. in this case look at the file .xsession-errors
in your home directory, it might have some good info to help debug your
hang in there.

Hmmm. Having open source kinda takes the mystery out of this sort of
thing ... :(
