when you are in command prompt....and you type #]: startx
are you able to get into Xwindow?
if you are able to enter the gui interface by typing startx from the prompt, then everything is okay....and all you need to do is type 'Linux 5' at the Boot loader prompt, then you will be able to automagically enter gui during bootup.
If you definitely want a GUI, then edit the file
and change this line:
change the 3 to a 5 and it will always bring up a GUI if it can ie assuming you installed one.
rpm -qa |grep -i gnome
rpm -qa |grep -i kde
to see if you have installed either.
