Assuming a boot -r was done, you might see a message along the lines of "X11 
could not start, driver for framebuffer not found" I've gotten this when I 
changed framebuffers (last one i recall was putting a Creator in a system 
built with a TGX (and was an OS+OEM install, IIRC))

I'm about to upgrade an SB1000 to an XV-1000, but I plan on doing a complete 
reinstall of the OS...
