Help! RED HAT


I was trying to configure some dial up setting for an ISP and I must have changed something because now I can only get the command line interface and not the RH desktop GUI.

The providers name is toast so now when I get my login it is:
toast login:
and after I log in with root user name and my password it says
[root@toast root]#

Also...I have to use Interactive startup and say N to PPP1 and PPP2 to even get to the command line login.

How do I get back to the GUI ???

If you are in runlevel 5 then the gui has probably tried to start - try startx like orange400 said, if the gui dies then take a look at /var/log/XFree86* and see if what errors are in the log.
