 What should I do to get a graphic Login Prompt(instead of that dummy terminal login) in Slackware 2.0.30 or RedHat 5.0. I have heard some guys use the xdm. Any help is appreciated.

 THANK YOU.

 Open inittab at /etc dir and at the top you will find the entry id:3 -- usually 3 stands for "the dummy terminal" and change it to four. reboot and you will see that you are going to login in XWindows ...

 P.S. You need permission to change the file inittab ... -- Root usually has this kind of permission --

 Good Luck ...
