Probably something is not well defined for your device or
monitor, or you don't have a valid SubSection "Display".

Check /var/log/XFree86.0.log to see if your device driver has found any
usable video modes. Look for something like: Modeline "1024x768" ...

Check your XF86Config file to make sure HorizSync and VertRefresh match
your monitor specs. Default values may not.

If you have X4.x installed, you could try letting X come up with a
configuration file by running "XFree86 -configure" as root. That might
give you a working configuration with a ugly display that you can tweak
into something more to your liking.

If you still can't X working, post your XFXF86Config file and
/var/log/XFree86.0.log to the list.
