Kickin' F10


Hi,

I'm NOT about to kick F10 out. I just need to know how to "bypass" mode 5 (my desktop boots in mode 5) and boot in as root - textually.

Tnx!

Thor

Another note, if you just want to get to a CLI interface for a one time thing, hit Ctl-Alt-F3 through Ctl-Alt-F6. To get back hit Alt-F1.
