one possible problem is a full partition. so if you setup an own partition for /home it could be (its one possibility) that your /-partition is full? (check with 'df -lh')...
another realy helpful step would be to check /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Whats says the messages there? Can you use 'system-config-display' as root from runlevel 3 or does even this crash?
to get through this list of steps to get x working with root, you can start as described here:
- any partition full (/, /tmp,...)?
- is it possible to start a single X (not the full desktop), just run 'X'
- check messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log
