OK, this is worth 100 points... fix it really well and i will give you 200 (and an A, so 800 expert points...)
I was messing with glide drivers and i don't know WHAT i did... but when i booted up again.. it would not go into my GUI login (i want to know how to disable that from consol mode) and it would just flick the login screen (console mode login, not the grapical) and give no errors.. just display
Linux version... blah blah
and keep refreshing (seemingly) the screen. the only way i could log in at all was if i turned it off and when it checked my file system enter my root password. when i did this , ran fsck and fixed that up. .but i did not seem to have all my root permissions... i tryed (RH 6.1) to run "setup" and change the X Windows configuration, it said it could not access the file and i did not have permission...
my friend told me that when you go in like i did, it puts you in read only mode, how can i get out of that if that is the problem?
sorry for the bad format of asking, i am tired and fustrated by trying to fix this all day... :)
