Cool XBMC . screen


hi to all .

I just installed XBMC Live on an old PC i have here. the problem is i cant get the GUI to work .

the thing is . it has 4 options.

1 - Live CD boot with Nvidia driver , Dose not work .
2 - Live CD boot with ATI driver , Dose not work as well .
3 - Live CD boot with Intel driver , it works but its slow .
0 - install to Fixxed HDD . which i did .

now everytime i boot up it gose to the login screen in CLI and it flashes.
i played around with xorg.conf and changed my driver from Nvidia which was the default to vesa, now all i see is a flashing black screen and the mouse on it as X ..

thanks for the help .
