First some questions:
1. Does the machine lock up when you run X?
2. Do you know what video card you're using?
3. What is the output of pciconf -lv, dmesg?
4. What does Xorg -configure produce?
Finally, can you change the driver setting in the xorg.conf.new to vesa
and run X -conf /root/xorg.conf.new and see if it works then?
