How far does it get, can you login ?

Have you done the following as per one of the Fedora Core 5 test results


    # Disable exec shield
    kernel.exec-shield = 0
    vm.legacy_va_layout = 1


    # Set this to no to disable prelinking altogether
    # (if you change this from yes to no prelink -ua
    # will be run next night to undo prelinking)
    PRELINKING=no #change this to no
