The XFree86 and XFree86-xfs rpms are broken in pinstripe, both as part of 
the install and when downloaded separately. I'm sure you know this 
already, but just giving you my $0.02. It seems that most of the modules 
don't get installed and in xfs it fails with init. Both are reported as 
cpio.h errors. 

BTW, I like the new distro otherwise.

Oops.. I should mention my hardware. S7 mvp3 board with a Rage Fury Pro. And I 
was attempting to use the XF 4.0.1 from an ftp install. I don't know if the 
rpms are ok on the iso images... I know my video card doesn't work with 3.3.x, 
but I had X working with the binaries from the xfree86 website.

cpio errors indicate problems with your previous install;
did you get something like:

Error unpacking on /etc/X11/xserver: cpio: unlink failed?
