Boot to command prompt directly
I am trying out Red Hat Linux 9.0 (first venture into the Linux world). I got it working, but tried to modify the display settings (to increase the color settings to 24Bit true color). I got a message saying that my old settings were backed up as <filename>.bak (I don't recall the filename). When I rebooted, I found my display totally messed up... the screen is black and I can faintly see the characters written on the screen - none of them are legible though.
I think I will be able to restore the old configuration file, but I don't know how to boot directly into the command prompt - I tried booting using the boot diskette, but it still takes me to GRUB GUI and again, I can't read anything there...
Is there any way for me to bypass the GUI and go directly to the command prompt?
