I did nothing but issue startx. No intervention
to cause the server to shut down.

> If so, what caused the error?

Selinux or MTRR, whatever it is? See following.

Three selinux packages are installed.
selinux-policy-default
libselinux1
python-selinux
Appears that I shouldn't remove libselinux1 at least.

> try an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file that looks like this:

Active lines are down past the comments.
http://carnot.pathology.ubc.ca/dalton.xorg.conf
yields
http://carnot.pathology.ubc.ca/dalton.Xorg.0.log

Now in the log there is no (EE) and no /dev/fb0.
This is what appears on the screen after startx is issued.

peter@dalton:~$ startx

This may be unrelated, but I noticed from the log that ACPI is disabled. A standard
stock Debian kernel has ACPI enabled by default. The only way it should fail is if
you have a kernel boot parameter to disable it. Please post your /etc/lilo.conf
file.
