Question FC2 on XPS desktop

I've successfully installed FC2 on my machine, but whenever I run the "x" mode the PC hangs.
Guess it has something to do with the Video card.
Can someone please help.

Config ::
p4 3.4
Ram :: 2 GB
Video :: ATI Radeon 9800 XT
Monitor :: Dell UltraSharp Digital Flat Panel Display
250Gb Maxtor SATA 7200RPM

You mean you have a black screen?

Did you enter correct refresh rates for your monitor?

Can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?

Thanks for the help. I fixed it last night. I had to install the drivers for the ATI card from run level 3 and rebuild the kernel !! ..
