Hi Neal,

I had a similiar problem with XFree86-4.3.0-64.  I
first tried kernel 2.6.3-2.1.253.2.1 as well and also
an earlier one and the same thing happened for both. 
My screen froze during boot-up, but my keyboard still
worked.  The X server had crashed.

After an hour of trying to figure out what was wrong,
I figured out that it was glibc.  I was able to get to
a command-prompt (Ctrl-F1 at the blank screen).  From
there, attempting to run startx resulted in a
different error message from the logs (logs said that
/dev/apm_bios didn't exist).  The output from the
command line complained about not being able to find
something in a glibc file (I don't remember exactly
what it said, but it was trying to reference something
that didn't exist).  I believe that it was version
2.3.3-13.

I upgraded to 2.3.3-17 and everything worked.  The X
server started as expected.  I also downgraded to -63
for XFree86, but I believe that it was the newer glibc
that did it.  I'm also running an earlier kernel (it's
configured just how I want it - 2.6.3-1.118), but it
should work with the current one.

-Monica.
