X Windows Problems

I have Installed Red Hat 7.3 on AMD Athlon XP 2200, 256 DDR, Nvedia Graphics card.

The problem is I am unable to start the X Server. Whenever I start with the x server, the machine get struck up. I have even tried with setting the VESA driver. But still I face the same problem.

What might be the remedy for the problem.

Please help me.
