Question Freespire 2 installation and boot


Hi

i wanted to install Freespire 2.0. When i boot up the live cd everything seems to work. i go on with the installation, smooth, and then restart. When i boot Freespire, the progressbar is going to 100% and then all i see is a blinking cursor. I switch to the text console and try to start X manually, but it crashes. Although live cd recognized all my hardware, it seems xorg.conf in /etc is set up to use hardware i don't have.
I've tried installing without booting the live cd, but before the installation starts i get the same effect as in booting installed freespire.
Coulpd You please help me with it?
I'm new to freespire/ubuntu, i work with linux but never used X before (i use them as servers only). Is there any way to go through X configuration other then editing xorg.conf in vi?

Best regards,
K
