Default shutting down Xserver does not give a terminal screen

I have my system configured to start at run level 3. When I log in I then manually start X("startx") and have no problems. However when I try to shut down "X" by either logging off or pressing the ALT-BACKSPACE sequence, my display show "unable to display this resolution".

I have a clean install of RH9.0 and have upgraded everything including the Kernal. Following is the output of my "uname -a":

Linux gordito 2.4.20-18.9 #1 Thu May 29 07:08:16 EDT 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

My system is:

Dell dimension 8200 w/512meg
Nvidia Gforce 420 w/video out 64meg
using the 1.0-4363 driver
Philips DVDRW/CDRW
HP Deskjet 932C

Does anyone have any idea why my system will not allow me to return to the console after I shut down X?

fyi when I open a console window while in X it works fine.

TIA

Tim
