Hi.  You're going to need to provide more information than this for
people to be able to help.

During your installation, you provided information that created
a configuration file for X; that file should be located at
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4.  What's in it?

Also, your last X session (or, in your case, your last attempt
to get X to start properly) would have been logged in
/var/log/XFree86.0.log.  What does that say?  If it's a huge
file, making it available somewhere else and then providing a
link (rather than posting to the mailing list) is a good idea.
