I've been pouring over this a while. Is this laptop docked? Am I safe in assuming that during install you chose not to use a GUI? I need some more details about the install. I don't see anything "obvious" as to why this isn't working aside from the original problem with the session already started. I'll look at this again in the a.m. with a "fresh set of eyes".
Good luck. ;-)

The redhat install is pretty straight forward as I recall it. In any event the install guide is here. I'd read through it before starting the install, so you're familiar with each step.

Unless you have specific use for the machine you should probably accept most of the default values during the install. I only say that because it is much easier to troubleshoot a "default" install than a custom one in the event you have a problem.

If the install runs without having to go to text mode then you should at least be able to use the vesa driver and get a gui to work from.
Good luck. ;-)

So glad you got this sorted, looks like you had to get very specific with the refresh rates and monitor description to get this working? Just comparing the two xorg.conf files that's how it appears. In any event, you sorted this one yourself, good for you. Now you can move forward and start enjoying linux. Have fun.
Good luck. ;-)
