Fedora 6 won't boot anymore, stops on "Enabling local filesystem quotas"

EDIT: After reading another thread, I realize I might have changed something yesterday or the day before in xorg.conf. Could that do it? If so, how do I fix it? Is there a way to rebuild that file from scratch?

So I came back to my computer with the screen saver up, then it half loaded and froze. I just got a new stick of 1gb RAM, so I plugged it in and rebooted expecting everything to load correctly. What actually happened was that it just kind of stopped when fedora was loading.

It got to "Enabling local filesystem quotas," then froze indefinitely, so I hit CTRL+ALT+Backspace and it said this:

Enabling local filesystem quotas: [OK]
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit:line 819
1942 segmentation fault
rm -f $afile

Windows is fine with the new memory so I think something happened when I did a cold reboot. I've actually been doing a lot of those lately due to having problems getting linux up and running, as I'm new to it and thing tend to crash or freeze. I wasn't sure if it could do any damage, maybe it has?

Can anyone help?

EDIT: I don't think there is because other directories that are normally available are not there.

I went to the command line in rescue mode and there is no X11 directory in /etc/. Does this mean something is wrong?
