Do all of these machines have nVidia graphics cards?
Just a thought, but there's a known issue with the new Xorg 1.9 ABI that
breaks the older nVidia drivers, and I'm guessing the 6800 would be one
of them, hence the reason that Ubuntu *thinks* it is running ok. That
might also explain the fact that there is no X fallback coming up.

Kernel modesetting commands anyone?

I remember seeing something about a machine with SiS graphics...I had
trouble with them too :(
