There aren't any good catch-all methods for troubleshooting a "black screen on startup" error, though. How long did you let it sit? Some cards have been known to sit for up to 5 minutes before X really starts...

Or it could just be one of those random things that I don't understand and can't troubleshoot...

Hehe sorry for not being a little bit more specific with the error.

I actually to let it wait a little while (min or 2) and it gives the x-server crash error

I will try compiling the nvidia glx/kernel modules and see if that works rather then using rpms.

Thanks for the help
