Xorg Redux

  Thanks to the list X11 is now running perfectly on my desktop; not so 
on my Thinkpad R51.  Here's what's happening.  I installed xorg on this 
new 8.1 installation, and have run the xorg configure program, copying 
the xorg.conf.new file to /etc/X11 as xorg.conf.  I have both hald and 
dbus enabled in /etc/rc.conf.  When I try to run the test on xorg.conf, 
or if I just run "startx" I momentarily see the initial screen, which is 
displayed when X11 loads, but then the screen goes blank, and that's all 
she wrote.  No keyboard, no mouse, totally frozen.  The only way out is 
a reboot via the power switch.

As usual, help is very appreciated.
