after I changed the /etc/inittab file, I changed the run level from 3 to 5 to get GUI interface. I couldn't start my server.

The error is like :

"kernel panic -- not syncring: VFS: Unabel to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0). please see the picture for the detail.

How could I change it back to command startup? And how to enable GUI interface when I startup.

thank you.

I dont think your error has anything to do with run levels.  It looks like your system can not mount the root filesystem.

Are you sure you didn't change anything else?

Did you interrupt kernel upgrade? You still have option to run old boot option that is very likely to be intact.
If not - use recovery mode from install disk (instructions are found on redhat or centos site.)
