Thank you;
Early this A.M. I reloaded MDk but didn't format home every thing is back to normal.
I will write down alt-F7 for the next time it happens.

have a great day,
Digger

Right now I'm back in Win 98.
I do not know if it is virtual terminal 7 or not.
How do I find out, I'm a green rookie.
Please be patient, Digger

It just means that instead of displaying the output on "this" terminal, it's displaying it on "that" one. Linux has several 'virtual' terminals running at any given point, and you can switch between them using alt-F#, or ctrl-alt-F#, # being which terminal you want.

So if you switch to vt7, you shoudl see the X server output.
