Default X freezes on startup

I have an nvidia geforce2 card, running
linux 2.4.19 (gentoo 1.4). My system
freezes whenever I try startx. Also while
switching virtual consoles. Pretty XF86Config is fine, because the kernel on the install cd has no such problems.

I've built and tried kernels (2.4.19) with:
with/without agp,vga,apm,acpi
based on suggestions from docs and ppl.
Nothing has worked so far.

Also lspci does list a few pci devices that
share the same irq: USB, FireWire and VGA.
I have a usb kbd. However, this is the same
for the kernel with no problems as well.

Would appreciate any insight/suggestions.
