Change inittab and reboot before typing your s-c-d command.
startx failed with this error:

(EE) VESA(0): No matching modes
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

It seems that for using the vesa module, I have to build an old style 
xorg.conf (XFree86.conf ?) with a Section "Monitor" that hold HorizSync and 
VertRefresh options and that define several ModeLine options,
and several Modes options in SubSection "Display" of the Section "Screen".

Like the attachement file of the bug 1862
http://bugs.centos.org/file_download.php?file_id=205&type=bug

However, I don't know how to create these ModeLines, since the XFree86 Video 
Timings seems very old.

regards,
Alain
