How did you configure (or attempt to configure) X Windows? Give us
your XF86Config. Also, you might try something like:
`startx > $HOME/xlog 2>&1` # bourne shell syntax
`startx >& $HOME/xlog`     # csh syntax

If it's a configuration error that somehow causes a hang, rather than
an abort, there should be a relevant error in that.
