Linux Startup Problem
 
When I installed Mandrake Linux 9.1 I selected the option to not automatically login. Now when I start up Linux it brings me to a command line and I don't know how to get logged into Gnome or any of the other GUI. I can get logged into the computer through the command line login but is there a command to run a program so I can change that option and have Linux automatically log me in.

To get to a nice little GUI run:
Code:

telinit 5
To make the GUI login the default, edit the file
Code:

/etc/inittab
And change:
Code:

id:3:initdefault:
to
Code:

id:5:initdefault:
then next time you reboot you'lll see the nice graphical interface for logging in.
