Yes gheist, but why use "vesa" if there is a... better... driver?
So (still)... what hardware are we talking about here?

OK Guys

   i renamed the /root/.Xauthority file to /root/.Xautority.old


and i modified  the /etc/X11/XF86Config file

   i changed the 'Font Path' to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias '

and i reinstalled the xdm and gdm

now it's working fine ..


 Thankyou

Of course not gheist, you were right in that being a "red herring".
With the info we did get, and the lack of conversation... we could simply never have reached a solution here.
Don't take me wrong udaikumar, I'm glad you solved your problem, but... do you even know which of all the operations you did solved it for you?
Anyway, since the problem is solved, and this Q has no PAQ value... You should contact Community Support and have it deleted.

waiting for X server to shut down


then it comes back to the prompt. Startx fails. i have no clue how to debug/fix this issue.

There is no solution in this question. Lack of hardware upport comes from using outdated software on new systems.
For example newest release of your system is called Fedora Core 4
Write Combining will not work on Pentium and older CPU ...
