Garbled Dialog Box on Red Hat 8 boot.
Hey, I've got a problem, I've just installed Linux for the first time. I'm not sure whether my install is buggered or I'm just a real newbie, but when I go to boot a dialog box comes up after it's gone through all that loading devices ... OK stuff. It has two options, can't read either of them (they're in garbled text), pressing enter brings up an identical box, presssing enter again brings up a box with just one option, entering this kicks me to the command prompt. I don't know what I'm pressing enter too, so it's hard to figure out what's wrong. What I want to do is get into KDE or Gnome(?), those windows-like interfaces.
I've worked out how to log in at the prompt and browse around, because I'm fairly used to dos. But I've got no idea how to load an interface, shouldn't it be loading automatically, must be something to do with those boxes aye? What are they supposed to say.
Any help much appreciated.
