Blank Screen on every new and old account except for root account

After logging into any other account but root I cannot see the gnome desktop. No activity is started after logging in with a regular account. With root account, I can log into the system.

I have over 9 gigs of space and I thought I read that if you did not have enough space, the desktop would not start. I was wondering if anyone experienced such a issue like this on FC3?

Perhaps create a new account as root, then copy over things. Not a very elegant solution, but should work.
