INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes. FC2.

hello. first of all i would like to mention i'm new to linux, so be as detailed as you can please.
i recently installed Fedora Core 2, all was fine, the system ran for a week or so.
today when i booted up i couldnt get to the login screen, the blue screen switched to black and to back to blue in a loop. i booted linux rescue from cd#1 and tried:
# yum remove pango
# yum remove pango-devel
# yum remove xorg-X11
# yum install pango
# yum install pango-devel
# yum install xorg-X11
so now when i boot up i get "INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes."
i can press Ctrl+C and login as root, but when i run startx i get a funny colored terminal.
i added "/usr/X11R6/lib/font" to "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" but it didnt help.
i can boot up using Windows 2000 OS, Knoppix 3.9 or FC CD#1, but i dont know how i can use it to fix this mess, and i wouldnt want to format and reinstall FC2.
help will be appreciated.
