Try going through the install in text mode. Then after your system is installed try to run x again. it should work, but if not report back and fill us in on what the error is.

You should write here your graphics card type. Here is a simple howto for ATI card.
Install module-assistant, then run it and choose prepare, this will install packages for kernel module compilation.
Now you have prepared your system for module compilation. Download latest driver for your card and install it.
Then search for tool for creating xorg.conf, I think it is called aticonfig. Generate a new xorg.conf, check if module fglrx is loaded into kernel and restart x server.
