You forgot to say which distribution that is... I know its Fedora Core
1 from the kernel versions you indicate below, but you should make that
more clear. Just a suggestion.

Do what Rick suggested.

I think you mean gdm. Sounds like maybe you have something configured
incorrectly in /etc/X11/XF86Config.

Nope, its X.

Note that you have to manually upgrade your custom (ATrpms) kernel
modules when you upgrade the kernel...

See previous paragraph. Could be that you don't have all the necessary
bits installed (there are three or four different lirc bits that all
need to be of matching versions, kernel module included).

Like Rick said. Hit 'e' at the grub selection screen, tack a space and
the number 3 to the end of the kernel line, hit enter, then 'b', and
you should boot into run-level 3.

From the cli, try running redhat-config-keyboard.
