You're settings for X Windows (the gui) are probably wrong. If you can boot with the CD at the prompt type "rescue" without the quotes and edit /etc/inittab and make sure it boots to run level 3 instead of 4 or 5, this will put you at a prompt and allow you to edit the X Windows settings without it locking up.
