This a actually a problem in the anaconda installer !!!
It has installed another version of the kernel. I actully have an i686 machine,
but the xen kernel is not working.

The X server doesn't seem to be starting, thus the monitor goes to stand-by.

To fix this you need to install a proper kernel for your machine. Download the
proper kernel from fedora repository and install it. If you have a permanent
internet connection (read NOT adsl or x-adsl) you can very easily do this in
rescue mode, just remember to run command "chroot /mnt/sysimage" BEFORE
installing kernel. To install the kernel run "rpm -ivh
your-kernel-neme-here.rpm". After install reebot and it should apear in the boot
loader menu.
