Description of problem:
Installed RHAS3 from  CD on a Dell Optiflex GX110 with the on-board
INTEL 810 video adapter.

Initially installed was Kernel 2.4.21-4.EL, XFree86-4.3-35.EL.

     StartX ran fine.

Upgraded the kernel via RHN to 2.4.21-20.EL. with XFree86-4.3-35.EL
still installed.

      Startx failed.

Installed XFree86-4.3-68.EL via RH, rebooted server and ran Kernel
2.4.21.20.EL.

      Startx failed.

Rebooted server and ran Kernel 2.4.21-4.EL and XFreee86-4.3.69.EL.
      
    Startx ran fine.
