Edit the /etc/inittab file

Change the line that reads as: id:3:initdefault:
To read as: id:5:initdefault:

save and exit.

Start X

Or just put

Startx in your rc.local if it fedora and slackware.

Changing your inittab is better though.

Or add
x:5:respawn:/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon
to /etc/inittab (if xdm shall be your login manager. Otherwise change this) This starts xdm in no-deamon-mode in runlevel 5)
