    Stuck in XF86Setup GUI - how to exit?

    Aargh! *Finally partitioned a hdd and loaded Linux via LISA (standard GUI install from CD didn't like my onboard AGP SiS 530 video??). *

    Now, when trying to configure XF86Setup (of course, I elected to try the GUI here, too!), I'm stuck on a screen displaying nothing but a big greyish rectangular blob on the screen. *Surely there is some command buttons and text I can't see or respond to. *So ... *how the heck do I kill the screen and get back to command line mode (short of the power switch).

    Phaete .. ally pooor at Linux

    Ctrl+Alt+Backspace will kick you back into the console. Eh, are you in Twm or something?

    Mega-thanx for the bail-out, Ashcrow! *And expedient to boot * * I tried <ctrl>+<shift>+<bkspc>, <ctrl>+<esc>, etc.

    Don't know what Twm is, so probably not.

    I got the SiS 530 driver instructions and the .rpm and .tgz install procedures. *Looks like I shoulda run xf86config instead of XF86Setup?? *Anyway, sounds like I need to rpm or tar the drivers BEFORE running xf86config?

    Am I even close on this?? *Sheeezz ....
