I made it past reboot......

and now i guess I can keep going with the install of gnome and stuff. I am wondering about frambuffer though. I left it alone in th grub.conf no with these big letters I want to use Im in root and type:
# nano -w /boot/grub/grub.conf and it is blank. I am in the wrong place it should have the config I typed in the install process right? I am still learning about mount, cd and stuff so it may just be i am not in the right mount point or something. so help me out but take it

What distro are you using? Most places will store the grub conf files in /boot/grub, though you might want to be looking at the menu.lst file to adjust boot parameters and framebuffer VGA options.
