Interesting. The DDC module is likely to be using the VESA BIOS too -- you 
may find that your box is dying when XFree86 tries to do _anything_ 

You said X works when you run it from the IDE drive. Do you have the
DiskOnChip drivers loaded? If not, does it still work when you run it from
IDE after loading them?
