    Hiya, got Linux 8.0 on me server, get to the Redhat Interactive Login, Sign in as myself, then it just logs in and gives me a console, what do I need to type into the console to get the proper GUI like KDE is it called? with icons and all the applications I chose to install at boot?

    I chose Server install, and need to put all my windows applications on it to store them, (I know they won't work on the server, but it can store them for network use)

    Please help,

    Skazz

    if i'm not mistaken, you'll need to type "start x" or "startx" at the command prompt.

    this should crank up the nice gui look everyone is used to seeing.

    startx it is. You can use the control center (think that's the name) to set the computer to boot into the GUI everytime it starts.

    i've setup RH inux 8 on my box

    it went out fine.

    choose custom setup

    don't alter any settings unless you really know what you're doing

    msg me if it doesn't go smoothly

    can you tell me how to use grub? it has cool interface but it says "cannot load image into memory" i'm using LILO and it's fine now
