Good evening John,

perhaps the following questions might help you:

1. did you have a look at the file /var/log/startx.log ?

2. are you sure that the old Xfree86 V3.1 supports your video card
   (e.g. Cirrus Logic CLGD5440 is not supported)

3. X-Window requires a working mouse: look at /var/log/startx.log to
   see if your mouse is configured properly.

Good luck and Hear from you tomorrow... :-))
