mike, you prolly saw this in my previous post, but his card doesn't
support DRI.  his mtrr's also weren't set up correctly.  but neither of
these should be "problems".   

i couldn't see anything obviously wrong with stderrput of startx.

jim, if you send me the output of dmesg, i'll look at your boot messages
and see if anything is wrong there.

the only reason why i suggest this is you mentioned that the machine's
lost networking at the same time as it lost a functioning window/desk

sounds suspicious that both happened at the same time.  makes me think
there might be a larger issue here.

hmm...  just for shits and giggles, why not post the output of "df -h"?
