    Re:Newbie Question

    Whether or not it boots to a graphical or text login depends on how you have your system configured.

    You change the runlevel you boot into by editing the file /etc/inittab.

    Look for the line: id:*:initdefault:
    The * will be a number.

    Change the * to one of these two values.

    3 - boot to console mode
    5 - boot directly in X11

    Also can you start X from the shell prompt?
    After you login, at the shell prompt type: startx

    Make sure X works before editing /etc/inittab to boot runlevel 5.
