Have you got an .xinitrc, and does it start a window manager or an xterm
or something? What you're seeing is a successfully started X server with
no clients attached to it, so your XF86Config is fine.

I don't believe 2.2 kernels do, but there's support in 2.3.
Plain text only would probably be better here.
