Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

There is virtually no information here to diagnose the problem.
You are going to have to check your X logs and message logs. It's usually a good idea to move them to a different directory, restart syslog and try to reproduce the problem. This way you will have a fairly clean log history.
if you are making a considerable jump in between versions, you might want to select your kernel options by hand as there could be some missing dependancy or perhaps something has changed.
Rule of thumb, if something breaks and you are using an automated approach, just try it by hand.
If it only happens in X, it still could be anything and it might even be something as simple as AGP.
If you are running the nvidia drivers, did you reinstall them after reinstalling your kernel. The kernel module was most likely trashed when you did make module_install
Being nvidia drivers have been a huge headache for me. If you are using them, change your x config back to the original driver (nv).
I'm sorry to bother you guys, but this seems to not work at all, I managed to download the NVidia drivers, but it only half-way installed, i got some kind of error message, but hell..
Maybe I should try to create a new kernel?? There should not be any difficulties using the old "/boot/config" file under "make menuconfig"?? the only thing I have to change is the High Memory support or??
I think it is pretty hard finding good information about this subjekt.
Anyone out there who could give me some kind of list of wich commands i should use??
