ok ive got as far as opening the file rc.S with the mousepad and it says to enter a # in front of the line
/usr/bin/xinit -- -br>/dev/null 2>&1 & so it looks like this
#/usr/bin/xinit -- -br>/dev/null 2>&1 &
but the line in the mouse pad looks like this (space)/usr/bin/xinit -- -br>/dev/null 2>&1 & (with spaces at the start)
do i put it here or
#(space)/usr/bin/xinit -- -br>/dev/null 2>&1 &
here (space)#/usr/bin/xinit -- -br>/dev/null 2>&1 &
or do i get rid of the spaces?
the spaces dont show on here to ive placed (space) to represent it

The configuration file most likely pays little attention to whitespace, so it shouldn't matter. What you're doing is commenting out the line so the program won't pay any attention to it. It's like you deleted that line, but you didn't delete it so the change can be undone.
