a little update:

When i get to the part where i can select the kernel (grub) i press A to edit the boot.

I've removed rhgb quiet

and replace it with a 3 so the comp will start in text mode.

After doing this everything goes fine....how is that ?

it's because the problem you're having is with loading X, and runlevel 3 doesn't load X...

I'm not quite sure what the real 'fix' is yet...I'll let you know if I find anything.

Ok, so the smartes thing to do is boot the computer in text mode, and if nessasary start X.

My question:

How do i configure my computer so i wilt have TEXT mode as standaard boot ? ( runlevel 3)

edit /etc/inittab

near the top, find the line:
id:5:initdefault:

and change the 5 to a 3
