Firstboot problem

When I boot my AMD K6-2 development testbed machine, firstboot fails
with the following:

Module Loader present
OS Kernel: Linux version 2.6.1-1.65custom (root tembo private) (gcc
version 3.3.2 20040119 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.2-8)) #1 Fri Feb 6 14:32:55

Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
         (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
         (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.

    import gtk
line 43, in ?
RuntimeError: could not open display
[root tembo root]# Window manager error: Unable to open X display :1

The system recovers from the bomb and continues on.  Running from the
command line yeilds the same results.  The X-server doesn't fail, the
root window and X cursor appear briefly and then the firstboot messages
flash by and a boot.log message simply states that firstboot: failed.

I do not know if the X server is coming up as the proper screen or on
the proper virtual terminal.
