Description of problem:
Booting the machine does not lead to the GUI that it always has
in the past. It seems to be failing in XFree86, and it seems to be
choking on the fonts. I can't recall that I have installed any fonts
of late. I did install ABAQUS 6.4-3 last week, but I explicitly DID
NOT install the documentation (that does not rule out it having
overwritten the font directories, I suppose). I did install
OpenOffice 1.1.1, but I believe I've successfully rebooted since then.
I will attach the XFree86.0.log and message files.

According to the log file you've installed a proprietary version some
of the X components from ATI. Red Hat does not support propietary
closed source products from third party vendors. The proprietary
driver from ATI is failing to load. This may be due to version
mismatches between the ATI package you installed and what is found in
the 2.1 version of RHEL. You will need to address this issue with ATI
or reinstall X to pick up software components supplied and supported
by Red Hat.
