I don't know of any way to do that. It may not be safe, if you change something like the color-depth or screen resolution to a value that will not work.

The best way, IMO would be to schedule some downtime, and bounce it then.

Hammer & Screwdriver

With RH 7.2

When install you have 2 chose:

- Login with Console (Text)
- Login with X (X Windows)

After install finish! If you want change your chose. You must login as root and use command:

root@localhost#: Xconfigurator

You are using Linux with X. You can reboot your system by use command:

root@localhost#: reboot

Good Luck Smilie
