We AS-U-MEd that an install of Enterprise 6 of Redhat Enterprise would be very similar as Verions 5.   But it looks like the boot process does not let you do an Ctl-Alt-F1 to see the progress of the boot (Unless we are missing something) When we started the install of the 80 or so updates, it got through about 20 updates, then rebooted the server. When the server came back up we got a unresponsive blank screen.  We were hoping that it was doing something behind the sceans but after almost two hours, we assumed that we were looking at a dead OS

Is this normal.?  Is there something we might have missed.

Try key sequence ctrl-alt-tab or may be alt-tab.

It is not normal

If this is happening, try starting at run level 1, then if everything works fine, you can proceed to run level 3 by issuing command
init 3

If you want to proceed with GUI, try startx or init 5
