This has been answered here quite a few times (I had this problem myself) and it is always an X configuration problem. You can search this forum for "respawn" and read posts where others had this problem, or simply run xf86config from the command line (in safe mode) and make sure you put in the correct settings for your hardware.
btw: the /boot pop up warning you describe is because you put the /boot partition after the 1028th block of your hardrive. Some older bios's cannot boot past this block, which is why it suggested you make a boot disk. If your bios is new, this should not affect you. (although you should always make a habit of making a boot floppy or two for emergencies)
