Hmm... haldaemon and messagebus daemons are running?
Can you run:
	service haldaemon status
	service messagebus status

Also, run 
grep xkb_options /var/log/Xorg.0.log

It should say something like
	(**) Option "xkb_options" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
severals times. If not 10-keymap-custom.fdi is not loaded.

And:
grep xkb_rules /var/log/Xorg.0.log
This should say
	(**) Option "xkb_rules" "evdev"
If not, you do not use evdev but probably kbd.

You don't need to run Xorg -configure. Just create an xorg.conf with 
the lines from previous mail.

Try ctrl-alt-backspace before login (where display manager kdm or gdm ask 
you for user and password). Try changing gdm with kdm:
	echo "DISPLAYMANAGER=KDE" > /etc/sysconfig/desktop
	init 3; sleep 5; init 5
(be sure kdm is installed: yum -y install kdm).
