I am trying to setup Lenny as dom0. However I cannot get the X server to
start. I have tried drivers vesa, nv and nvidia. The latter causes the
system to hang. Here is my output from driver nv. The output from vesa
is similar (has the same errors).

Many thanks in advance!

I know this might seem like a dumb question, but did you install the
OpenSource Nvidia drivers? Or even the Nvidia drivers from Nvidia
themselves and make sure they were working and tested correctly?

Sorry, sound like an idiot, it seems you did. What are the contents of
your xorg.conf and after you installed nvidia-glx and it failed did you
try running: dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg from console?
