You're posting in the wrong forum, Either Linux-General, Linux-Networking, Linux-newbie, or the Fedora specific subforum of the Linux-distribution section would be more appropriate. Wait for the moderators to move the thread rather than double posting, and welcome to LinuxQuestions.

AMMulan, I am not a moderator, but I think it would be best to wait until this thread is moved rather than to reply in an inappropriate forum. I can't force you, but it will probably happen anyway.

K this is my POV:

If I wait for this to be moved he might be waiting a couple of days - I answered his question because as far as I can see the thread will be moved anyway and this way he gets his answer sooner...

I have the thought that I like to help people as soon as I can, that way they don't have to sit and wait, they have the answer right there and then the Moderators can move the thread when they notice it

Thanks for your concern anyway Squall I'm sure you'd like to have your Q's answered quickly too, right?

If you got through x its pretty easy.

e.g. type:startx and its basically windows all over again. Once you have connected go back to the console and read what red hat has changed.
