Maybe your hardware is not currently supported by redhat?

What is your hardware spec (video, sound cards, processor, harddrives (external / internal)...)?

How have you installed (redhat only / dual boot with Windows...)?

Does the login continue to go on and off for a long time, or does a message come up saying something like:

Can't start X server! Do you want me to run the Xconfigurator?
