[CentOS] X broken after up2date

I've installed Centos 4.2 X86_64 on a PE2800 box with a Radeon 700 card and
a generic Dell monitor.
After running up2date before putting this box in production and make a
reboot I can't get into X anymore, my monitor shows a message "out of sync"
and that's it.
So I tried logging in via ssh to run 'setup' and to use the X setup program,
but it doesn't want to start.
So I changed /etc/inittab to 3 insead of 5 and rebooted again. Now running
setup from the box itself still doesn't seem to work quite well. I only get
the message probing and that's about it.
The videcard or monitor are still working flawlessy because using a live CD
with X isn't a problem.
Any ideas what went wrong? Because I'm thinking of reinstalling but don't
want to run into this same problem again..
