I have a Dell D800, and not seeing the problem. Check with Nvidia
it seems their server cannot run two instances of X simultaneously,
either drop the rhgb boot parameter in grub.conf, or remove the
Nvidia driver until they fix this issue.

Comment 2 Marko Bevc 2004-11-10 16:35:55 EST
found next things(facts):
-rhgb sits default on vt8
-i turned on consoles tty7 and tty8
-rhgb should exit oon end of load but it does not -> so it can not 
live with tty8
-rhgb from FC2 is working properly

(there can be 2 instances of X server with nvidia driver)
