    Can you access the command prompt (press ctrl+alt+f1 )

    and can see any error file /var/log/messages file
    cat /var/log/mesages | more
    use space bar to nagviate the output.

    Have you tried installing Mandriva 2009.It's pretty easy and I love it for GUI and easy user friendliness ,though performace is lower than debian or fedora.

    EDIT: If you already in command prompt & want to start X mode use the command

    startx
    And also post any error messages here
