editting the inittab file

okay, i changed my inittab file to boot into single-user mode so i could install my Nvidia drivers.. they're installed BUT I don't know how to reedit and save my inittab file in single user mode. How would I do this?


How would I boot into XWindows from single-user mode?

if any more info is needed please ask.. I won't be able to post too much stuff cuz i'mn on a school comp so i don't have access to my comuter... my comp is pretty much useless right now anyways
