X starts(init 5) and then crashes
Well, I have been up and running RedHat for about eight hours and have have broken it already. That is what I am here for. OK, I was in /etc and did a sysunconfig or something of the like. Well, right away the system crashed. I rebooted and a config menu(blue screen) came up. Went through it and it again crashed as it started X...by itself by the way. Before I ran the command(sysunconfig), the default run-level was init 3 and it looks like it is now configured as init 5 since X is starting and crashing right away. So, what I need to do is be able to run xf86config to change the X settings and change the default runlevel. I am running grub as I think this matters. The only problem is I don't know how to get to a point in which I am at the command line with the linux partitions I need are mounted. This is probably easy but I don't have a clue how to do it. I also don't know how to change the default run level. Like I said I am brand new to Linux. Oh yeah,I am almost running Rehat8.0.
