Huh?  Shutting off the monitor is exactly what one would expect
a safety device to do.

You do not need to have the X server running on the local CRT
in order to use X through the network.

I am not sure whether you said if you can boot up and log in
through a text mode terminal.  If you do that and type 'startx'
you should see some messages on the text mode console that might
be useful---things like what video clock settings it is trying
to use.

If RedHat has set it up so that you need X to log in, your first
job is to break out of that stupidity and just get a working text
