Please Help Red Hat 7.2 GUI not loading & Connection issue

Please Help
Let me start off by saying that I am a total idiot when it comes to unix. Please, if you would care to reply keep this in mind. Thank you.

I have been attempting to get my unix machine online to no avail. I have the rest of the house networked with 3 other windows machines into a cable modem. The service provides dynamic IP addresses and I have had difficulty linking the unix machine.

My first problem is on shutdown
I am having a failure
shutting down NSF statd FAILED

and now when I reboot, the GUI (gnome) does not start. The last thing I modified was the DNS Server (I believe)

Please help
I am running Red Hat 7.2
on a dell dimension xps h266
with ethernet card

Thank You
