Try turning off the xfs service. 'service xfs stop' on the command
line and do a ctrl-alt-backspace to restart X only (not reboot). If
that helps you, make sure you turn it off permanently on all runlevels
using the system-config-services tool. That cleared up many issues
like this for me due to a X-xfs bug causing many things not to start,
including nautilus.

If that doesn't help, I don't know what's up on your system.
