Question Ctrl+alt+(f1-f6) does not work..


Ctrl+alt+(f1-f6) does not work..
Am using VMware just for Practice purpose.

I have installed Redhat Enterprise Linux 5.
But Whenever i start my System(VMWare)it shows the GUI mode.
When i press Ctrl+alt+f1 etc...i could not get the text mode.

I changed the default setting in /etc/inittab but when changed it logs on to text mode and i could not get GUI mode when Ctrl+alt+f7 is pressed..

Any Suggestions..............

Comment out the line (or change to value to False) in the ServerFlags section of xorg.conf that contains "DontVTSwitch".
