Does X try to start and fail or just never try to start?
X-server try to start and fails after the complete instalaltion is over and
During installation it throws an error like the following.
"Running anaconda,the RedHat Enterprise Linux Server System
probing for Video card Matrox Graphics,Inc.MGA G400/G450
attempting to start frame buffer X-server
Waiting for X-server to start--log located in /tmp/rmfs/X.log/

_XllTransSocketINETConnect() Can't get address for localhost:60001:Temporarly
Failure on name resolution

In order to avoid this in the boot prompt if i give
it will proceed with the installation in non graphical mode
I think this is fixed with newer trees.
