Fedora Core 2 Won't Start Xserver

I can't get FC2 to boot. It brings me to, "localhoas: login" and I have to put in root and PW then I type "startx" and it give me the error "cannot start xserver, cant configure pointer device". I have tried to select my mouse from the config list, but it still hangs tryin to display the desktop. I don't know what to do next. Any suggestions would be helpfull. Thanks!
