Triple Boot: Xp, Backtrack 2, Ubuntu

Hello Everyone,

I've installed Xp, Backtrack 2, and Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron B130 laptop. I don't have any problems booting to XP or Ubuntu, the problem is with BT not loading the GUI when I type "start x." When I try to load the GUI I get a "fatal server error: no screens found:" Now, I have no problem booting from the Live BT CD, everything works fine. Here is the difference I have noticed when booting from the Live CD and booting from the HD: When I boot from the Live CD, I have to type "bt acpi=off" then I boot up and I'm able to log in as "root" and then "start x" and the GUI will load. When I boot from the HD, BT loads with no problem and I'm able to login as "root" but I don't have to type bt acpi=off. I don't know if this is causing the problem or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
