xorg-x11 update may have broken my system


This morning, yum updated automatically my system, and I saw it updated the 
Xorg-X11 packages.
I shut down my computer without any pb, and this afternoon, I 've tried to 
start my linux box, and it doesn't want ;-(

It can boot using the FC4 install DVD rom, in rescue mode, but I can't make it 
to work using the usual boot process.

Grub comes fine, it begins to boot, the partitions are mounted, but when it 
wants to display the little windows (now the boot process is graphical) that 
shows the boot process, I have a fully colored screen, and nothing happen. I 
have to power it off to shut it down.

As only the xorg-x11 packages were updated, I suppose, this comes from them.

Now I would like to be able to downgrade them, but I don't know how.

I can boot from the install dvd, and boot in rescue mode, then 
chroot /mnt/sysimage, but once there, what can I do ?
I have another computer where I can burn a dvd with the previous xorg-x11 
packages, but I don't know how to mount that dvd when I'm in rescue mode.
A "dmesg | grep hd" shows me that my dvd burner is "hdc", but when I type : 
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder, I have always the same message : 
"/dev/hdc doesn't exist", or something similar.

Thank you for your help
