That didnt fix it but led to another discovery. X does infact start WITH the startx command (opens the three consoles with TWM) but issuing "/etc/init.d/xdm start" leads to the "freeze" up.
I run KDE, and have set the window manager variable in the rc.conf is set to kdm.
Any other info needed? Just ask =)
When i say really long, i mean REALLY long, i let it sit over 30 minutes one night, and never made it through the couple of splsash screen resolution changes.
