X Server Configuration?

Yesterday afternoon I installed Fedora Core 4 on my main desktop, and as far
as I can tell, everything is working correctly, but I cannot get any GUI
sessions started, and I get a message "I cannot start the X server (your
graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would
you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem?" when I
reboot; choosing <Yes> leads to a text login prompt; <No> does the same. I
have not used Linux in a few years (due to being on a restrictive DoD
network), but the Suse 9.0 that was on my computer before and a Knoppix disk
both worked fine with my hardware -- relevant parts listed below.

ABIT NF7-S v2.0 motherboard, bios 27
3x 512MB Corsair PC3200 ram
ATI Radeon 9800XT video card
Western Digital WD740GB and WD2500JB hard drives

Any ideas would be tremendously appreciated!
