Display flickering issues on RHEL 5.2

Oops.. lost some comments:
This issue is being watched since Matthew Yates is on vacation. The customer has returned with the following update:
Still a problem with RHEL5.3
Using intel driver:
kernel crashes on first startup of X
Using i810 driver:
Chances of proper output being displayed seem to be high, but when I Ctrl+alt+F1, run random stuff, then ctrl+alt+F7, screen went back to flickering colors that were in the last frame buffer, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to kill X didn't resolve the issue, neither did running init 3, then init 5. Had to reboot to get a normal display again.
Using vesa driver:
Chances of proper output being displayed seemed intermittent maybe roughly 80% successful, then an entire screen of a specific color.
Running `system-config-display --reconfig` (after deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf):
Still causes crash (I assume because it tries to load the "intel" driver.)
Xorg Packages in use:
Too late for 5.4. Should be 5.5
