OK... First off thanks to everyone that helped with the drivers for my PCI
graphics card. I went another route and bought a DVI to HDMI cable am now
able to use the TV as a monitor for the minor issues needed when i can't use
putty. Now however the server will not boot to the X Server. I can only
bring up CLI.

I've tried the following commands:
startx gnome

and a multitude of others. However I get the following errors from both
putty and while hooked up to the machine.

[root at localhost ~]# system-config-display
Couldn't start X server on card 0
Couldn't start X server on card 1
Couldn't start X server with old config, trying with a fresh configuration
Couldn't start X server on card 0
Couldn't start X server on card 1
Error, failed to start X server.

[root at localhost ~]# startx gnome
