Thanks to all who replied.  I'm going to try CJ's suggestion the next time it blows up.  For now I'm just trying a reinstall with all the defaults.
Special thanks to Orien for summing up most of my experience with linux so far, video/sound included.  Ironically, I've had a little better luck at home, with hardware that's not so corporate standard.  Go figure.

Was this actually "etc" instead of "ect", and just a remnant of having
been typed in by hand instead of copy/pasted?

This probably means that the section of your xf86config file which defines
your graphics card isn't set up properly. What card do you have, and
what's the relevant section of your xf86config? In fact, attaching or
uploading the xf86config somewhere would be useful.

You could certainly try "X -configure" or "xf86config" or "xf86configure"
(I always forget which one is most useful to me) to see if it'll spit
out a valid config file for you. The one which I usually use is non-
interactive and tends to work fine 99% of the time.
