Edit your /etc/inittab to runlevel 3. Its usually set to 5 by default in redhat and will automatically boot into the Xwin system. Smilie

Console is what you need, you just can press alt+ctrl(or shift?)+ F(1,2,3,4..) it will help you to find out that linux is multiuser os Smilie to retrurn back to your xwin you just can do alt+F7

Hello yls177. All linux installs offer some form of a command line interface. In fact the easiest way to use this interface is by using the terminal emulator in the gui. However if you use ctrl-alt f3, you can switch to command line mode. If you dont want a gui interface at all, you can choose not to install one during the installation. Red Hat uses the Bash shell as default, but comes with the korn shell and several other shells that you might be more familiar with from hp-ux or ibm-aix.
