then this is a Vm issue and not a linux fedora problem
please reread the instructions on whatever VM ( VMware i am guessing but there are others ) you are using
also fedora 14 is 3 versions OUT OF DATE
there IS NO current software for it
no new NOTHING
the only way on the old 14 you would get a text boot ( by default) is if YOU installed a TEXT ONLY install
if you did not set aside enough system resources in this unnamed VM
or did not specify the 3d card in this " VM"
when is press 'startx' is goes in gui
there is no " pressing " of a typed into the terminal
you HAVE to type into the terminal " startx "
but on fedora that will NOT work
that task is covered by the Desktop Manager ( GDM )
BUT if you insist
on using a DEAD version of fedora
then you might want to post a question on the End Of Life thread over at fedora forum
"EOL (End Of Life) Versions "
