Logon screen flickers between GUI and CLI RH9

Hi all,

Have installed RH9 minimum install so as to use for the installation of LFS (LinuxFromScratch) and have been successfull so far.
However, after leaving the computer on overnight to download some packages, I have come to find it frozen in the morning. Have had to do the nasty power reset as it not responding to any key combos.

On starting RH9, it simply flicks between CLI and GUI (tries). This goes on for ever.
I have tried running in repair mode and typing fsck, it finds some errors (renaming inodes)
but nothing else.
I have tried running 'redhat-config-XFree86' but returns with following error: Fatal IO error2 (connection reset by peer) on Xserver: 17.0.

I have checked XF86Config file and all looks ok.

Any ideas???
