I just installed Redhat Linux 9 to play around with it. It booted into the command prompt. How do I make it so that it boots into the GUI, and then on every other boot, boots into the GUI as well (so it temporarily permanantly boots into the GUI).

I think to automatically boot into GUI mode, you must set the runlevel to 5. Edit the /etc/inittab file, and you should find a section in the file that describes this.

Also, you may have not installed the right software. You need the X Windowing enviroment, and you might also want KDE Desktop or Gnome. Lack of X will result in no GUI.

i have it all figured out... i just selected the wrong video card during installation! i went to redhat and found a fix! now i can boot up into GNOME (which i did install). thanks for your help though.

cd changes directory

e.g

cd /mnt/

If you do this

cd ..

You will go "up" one ditrectory.

Use cp to copy things from one directory to another. mv works like cut.

e.g

cp /mnt/cdrom/smb.new /etc/samba/smb.conf
