Fedora C2 Black Screen

I originally installed RH 9. Yum updated to FC1 no problem. No with FC2, I get a blank screen when it goes to start x. I have changed the runlevel down to 3 to get to a command prompt, but what now?

I have a Compaq Armada M700 with ATI mobility gfx, which I think is the problem.

Seems like it would be easier just to run the old Xwindows system rather than Xorg...Any way to do this in FC2?
